The Périnet hunting horn
High precision know-how combining technical performance and design
The history of “Périnet” is inseparable from the history of the trunk from the 19th to the 21st century. After taking over from his uncle Michel in 1994, Yannick Bureau, a man of communication and a 360 ° visionary while relying, like his elders, on traditional manufacturing processes, has integrated current technical knowledge to create a range of horns. responding to the most diverse and demanding demands. Sounding the hunt or in concert requires quite different characteristics. Yannick Bureau has established precise specifications for his craftsman specializing in wind instrument making, he relies on his expertise by using “Périnet” shapes, benefiting from their tool quality and the best choice of excellent. metal. After testing, Yannick Bureau validates the instruments and markets them himself at trade fairs, on his website, in his space in the provinces and through those of his dealers, particularly in Paris, at “Artumes & amp; Co ”.
Practicing the hunting horn is an art of living
For the sake of consistency, it was training in the latest teaching techniques, combined with his communication expertise, that enabled the start of a school in 1995 at the “House of Hunting and Nature”. These techniques are based on establishing good breathing and managing sound with controlled effort. Assisted by teaching professionals, it is nearly 50 bell-ringers per year, ranging from 10 to over 60 years old, women or men, who come to learn the practice of the horn for reasons as diverse as, to please, to honor the game during shooting hunts, to accompany hunting bands during a run, or quite simply, to make music.
Music is universal
From a “Bien-va”, launched to support the dogs, until the “Madison” sounded during the evening where we meet to celebrate together the day spent in the forest … Natural instrument (without pistons), with the key of D, the association with other instruments remains delicate. The technique of sound blocked with the hand increases the possibilities of the trunk. Many pieces have been composed for horn, trumpet and organ or chamber orchestra (Hunting Symphony by Mouret, Lully, Léopold Mozart). Today composers such as Claude Pipon, Sylvain Oudot, Hubert Heinrich enrich and update the repertoire. The association with other instruments, in addition to the musical emotion it provides, allows the horn to be replaced as a musical instrument and opens it to the knowledge of a wider public. Thus, among the associations, let us quote the piano, the organ, as well as the song or the jazz orchestra.
