#beginquote# Well, I think it's unfair to list the piano in amongst the other 3 choices because it's an "apples-to-oranges" comparison. The clarinet, flute, and trombone are all alike in the fact that they can only play one note at a time, whereas the piano can play up to 10 notes at one time (given that you have 5 fingers on each hand, and you don't start using your toes!). So that puts it at an unfair advantage. To make it more fair, you should only consider the piano as it sounds playing only a melody line. Having said that, I think I would vote for the clarinet as my favorite choice for a solo instrument. The piano doesn't sound as good when only playing one note at a time. I'm not particularly fond of the flute's light/airy sound unless it's mixed in with some other parts. And as a horn player, it's my goal to stay as far away from a trombone sound as possible! #endquote#
