When I was a kid my parents usually had one of the two (!) classical music radio stations on. (Now we don’t have even one where I live.) If there was a trumpet soloist you could pretty much guarantee you were going to hear that it was Maurice André.

I read about his death here.

  2. Yes, it is sad. A very very fine player. Mark B and I were just talking about him the other day.
