Maurice André

~ Person


Maurice André (born 21 May 1933 in Alès and died 25 February 2012 in Bayonne) was a French trumpeter, active in the classical music field.

He was professor of trumpet at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris where he introduced the teaching of the piccolo trumpet including the Baroque repertoire on trumpet. André inspired many innovations on his instrument, and his technical mastery and profound artistry has contributed over fifty years to popularize the trumpet worldwide.

Maurice André has performed and recorded all the great concertos of the trumpet repertoire with the most illustrious conductors of his time. He is generally recognized by his peers as the greatest classical trumpet player of the century.
