The brass section in the orchestra usually comprises four categories – trumpets, horns, trombones and tubas. In a traditional orchestra, brass was used for providing a big climax to a piece, however, starting at midway through the 19th Century, brass started to come into its own. The British brass band tradition also influenced many composers starting with Elgar and continuing to Holst and Vaughn Williams, where the brass is used as equal partner to the string section. German composers like Brahms and Wagner expanded the scope of the brass as well.

Strong brass band traditions exist in many countries, and the instrumentation usually includes cornets, tenor, baritone and flugel horns, euphoniums, tenor and bass trombones, basses, Eb and Bb tubas, as well as percussionists.

Some of the earliest brass were the Roman cornu and Greek salpinx, although a silver trumpet was found in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Horns date back to the use of natural horns derived from animal horns or tusks.
