  • I am glad for him, and I think it is also a credit to British brass bands that they can still foster talents. Having played solo cornet also gives the British trumpeters a very special sound of their own, just like Austrian trombone players, who often started in local brass bands playing the Barytone. Good luck, Mr Fointain! Well done, brass bands!
