All Music Guide:

French trumpet player Maurice André was in the Lamoureux Orchestra (1953-1960), the French Radio Philharmonic Orchestra (1953-1962), and the orchestra of the Opéra-Comique (1962-1967); he made his American debut as a soloist with the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra. He had an active touring and recording career that embraces virtually the entire period of trumpet solo music from Baroque to avant-garde. His playing has the expected virtues of brilliance, power, and endurance, and he combines his technical skills with a warm, even jolly, stage presence., Rovi
