THE TRUMPETS SHALL SOUND!

Nobody was/is so important to the "classical" way of playing as Mr. André. His style and sound were so pure. He was the first to play most of the telemann, vivaldi, ... catalogue in a long long time. A lot of baroque concertos were reissued due to him because those pieces were completely forgotten about. I surely want to play like him. My great idol.
Stomvi Bb Master Gold
Bach Strad ML mod37
A man like this will live on as long as his music is played by those that loved to hear him. My sadness comes from never hearing him play live.

I got the word earlier. How sad! He was indeed a giant talent, unique and iconic as they come. No one played like him.
Nothing is more contagious or tenacious than music. Once you are exposed it gets inside you and you can never get rid of it. It is also non-discriminating. It can be Ride of the Valkyries, In a Gadda da Vida, the Jeopardy 15 second thinking tune, your most disliked commercial jingle - it doesn't matter. Once triggered, off you go, like it or not.
Just notified by my teacher =( He will be remembered.

From O.J. Utnes's website, some wonderful information and links to this extraordinary musician.
May he rest in peace.
