Three-valved brass band instrument, soprano member in B flat of a group of valved horns developed in Austria and Germany about 1820–50 for military band use.

The cornet is a featured solo in Stravinsky’s ballet Petrushka 1911 and The Soldier’s Tale 1919, though its part is now more usually played (perhaps out of pride) by the trumpet.
