Posted in great performances, videos at 5:00 am by Administrator

Maurice André was a French trumpet master who lived from 1933-2012. Mr. André began studying trumpet with a family friend, and then joined a military band so he could attend conservatory for free. After only six months at the conservatory, he won a prize for his playing. He went on to perform thousands of concerts and create over 300 recordings as a trumpet soloist, and his work helped establish the trumpet as a solo instrument.

Here is a website with more info about Mr. André.
