#beginquote# #beginquote# It's not because they are louder. Actually, often times they are softer than the other sections of the orchestra. They play on the bass cleft, which makes them sound strong. Turn your radio on and turn the bass off (there should be a knob that allows you to do this. If not on your home radio than definitely in your car.). The music now sounds empty and shallow. There's no backbone to it. #endquote# Trumpets and horns play in TREBLE CLEF. Only TBones and Tubas play in Bass clef. I was only being a smart ass. Technically my answer is correct. The addition of the brass sounds makes a string orchestra sound stronger and bolder when needed. As Band Director, I am quite aware of the use of dynamics in music. Also balance, blend, and tuning. OOO and don't forget knowledge of styles and music history. #endquote#
