    Sorry to hear that. He was one of the greats for many years. Saw and heard him when he played with the Brass Band of Battle Creek a couple of years ago.:-(

    Sad news. The few exchanges I had with him (he gave me a lesson to replace Rod Franks when he was in hospital, and I was happy enough to observe a rehearsal of London Brass) were enjoyable and real learning experiences. He was not only an amazing musician, but a very nice person. R.I.P. MM!

    I remember hearing him play the Haydn with t'Halle band years ago then play first in "Pictures" with the proverbial cigar lit ! It was a momentous month-I'd just been given a tape of Maurice Andre playing the Haydn...undoubtedly two of the best ever.

    It is really bizarre. I was watching LSO's phenomenal performance of Prokofiev's "Dance of the Knights" last night before I went to bed.
