    My son was channel surfing and I heard the opening theme, then stayed for the rest. The trumpet work was excellent. Not only the solos but the section work as well. Who played in the section?

    The main theme for Star Trek: Voyager was composed and conducted by Jerry Goldsmith. It won the Emmy for best main title in 1995

    There is no mention of the orchestra or soloists used. I imagine if you knew someone who worked at Paramount Picture 15 years ago you might be able to track it down

    Thanks, the brass work is remarkable. So often we talk about orchestral musicians, but do not give the studio musicians their due. I, for one, would be really interested in hearing more about how studio work get done and who does it.

    For example, what is the current thought regarding what type of trumpet (make, key, bore size), is best used? Who is on who's crew and what does the second trumpet due to aid the first in the studio?

    I could only speak for NY, but this is a pretty great site about the LA players, where most of the TV work is done: Home - The Usual Suspects

    I remember reading Henry Mancini hand picked many of the studio players for his great series of albums back in the 60's to get just the sound he wanted. I also heard a lot of consistency between various albums. Some of my favorites of all time were Peter Gunn, Pink Panther, Mancini '67, The Blues and the Beat, I think, Breakfast at Tiffany's.
