    Triangle

    I have listend to many compositions in the Listening-Room.

    Oops, I found out that a nice instrument, the triangle, is not often used....?!

    What is the reason for that?

    Triangles are just obnoxious and silly little instruments!

    Re: Triangle

    Oh great. Now every piece posted in the Listening Room for the next two weeks will have a triangle in it. ;-)

    Triangles are great. They (like piccolos) can cut through the loudest orchestral tutti passages.

    The Equilateral triangle was favored during the Classical era, but has fallen into disuse in recent times.
    Contemporary composers tend to prefer the brighter tone of the Scalene and Isosceles.

    I agree. A very humble, simple and modest instrument yet when used in just the right place it can make such a difference.
