br /> Jonathan Quirk, Alan Thomas and Jonathan Holland, who help to make up the orchestra's trumpet section, worked with Yamaha UK's brass and woodwind department for six months before electing to use instruments from the Xeno Artist range.

Holland will use the New York Bb Trumpet YTR9335NYS model, while Thomas and Quirk decided on the Chicago C Trumpet YTR9445CHSE instrument.

On its official website, Yamaha said: "We are deeply honoured to be working with such an esteemed trumpet section and will be working closely with the players over the coming years."

In its near 90-year history, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra has been conducted by the likes of Sir Simon Rattle and Sir Edward Elgar.

It received a Classic FM Gramophone Gold Disc Award last year for its recording of the Saint-Saens PianoConcertos with Stephen Hough.
