Rafael Méndez Online Library : At age twenty, Méndez moved to the United States, working in steel mills in Gary, Indiana. Unhappy that he could not play his trumpet as much as he desired, Méndez moved to Flint, Michigan, where he began working at the Buick Company plant and playing in the company band.
Sergei Nakariakov : Dubbed “The Paganini of the trumpet” by the Finnish press after a performance at the Korsholm Festival when he was only 13 years old, and in 1997 “Caruso of the Trumpet” by Musik und Theater, Sergei has developed a unique musical voice, which is, much more than a vehicle for astonishing virtuosity.
Hakan Hardernberger : Håkan Hardenberger was born in Malmö, Sweden. He began studying the trumpet at the age of eight with Bo Nilsson in Malmö and continued his studies both at the Paris Conservatoire, with Pierre Thibaud, and in Los Angeles with Thomas Stevens. He is a professor at the Malmö Conservatoire and the Royal Northern College of Music Manchester.
Arturo Sandoval : Granted political asylum in July 1990 and US citizenship in 1999, Sandoval and his family now call Miami, Florida home. A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval was born in Artemisa, a small town in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, on November 6, 1949, just two years after Gillespie became the first musician to bring Latin influences into American Jazz.
Alison Balson : In 2009 Alison became an ambassador for the international charity War Child and in November 2009 she will curate a ground breaking concert at London’s Bloomsbury Ballroom bringing together some of the world’s most celebrated artists from both classical and popular culture to raise funding and awareness for the charity.
Bach Cantatas : By analyzing materials used in old instruments Ludwig Güttler has been able to play a decisive part in re-developing the corno da caccia, so that trumpeters today have a valve instrument of great versatility at their disposal. Ludwig Güttler’s enthusiasm to research and unearthing works has moreover been responsible for enlarging the concert literature by numerous new, chiefly 18th-century, work
January Magazine : To dance music lovers, Harry James was the leader for three decades of a consistently satisfying big band whose earliest incarnation gave Frank Sinatra his start and whose 1950s version found its most lucrative gigs at the casino hotels in Vegas and at Tahoe.
Maurice Andre : The opportunity of joining the 8th transmission regiment was offered to Maurice. He went to Paris at the age of 18. In 1951, he entered the Conservatoire (Street of Madrid) in the Class of the famous and handsome Raymond Sabarich. There, he worked hard, because Sabarich was a rude master, yet, very fair one.
