As it did in the baroque era, the natural trumpet continued to shine in the classical and romantic period. Although most of the music that included highly complicated parts disappeared in the classical and romantic period, there were some surviving styles that remained intact.

Composers such as Michael Hayden, Johann Molter and Leopold Mozart kept the high notes alive. In fact, their music during these time periods has the stamp of including the most difficult high notes ever present in music both in the baroque era and in the modern day.

During the classical period, there were many wonderful and exciting trumpet concertos and solos. The classical period was defined by music that was balanced, beautiful and reasoned. The romantic style of music in contrast was that of drama, dynamics and was very unpredictable while rich in harmony.
