The trumpet shall sound … no more (updated)main
The London Symphony Orchestra and brass players everywhere are feeling the loss of Nigel Gomm, fine trumpet player, allround good colleague, who has died after a long illness. He was 52.
Nigel leaves a widow, LSO violinist Belinda McFarlane, and two children. The LSO website is preparing a full obituary.
Meantime, here’s a video of a brilliant masterclass the Nigel performed with Maurice Murphy, who died last year. You’ll never see a better demonstration of how to play a trumpet solo.
