About the Book

This is a quite interesting book, written by my father. There is a little biography about his early life, but the meat of the text is given to his experiences working with different conductors over a long career as principal trumpet with the CBSO in Birmingham, the Halle in Manchester and then at the Royal Opera House in London. It is not about his family or home life, but more a collection of essays about working in a series of orchestras and the maestros he was working under. It's a good read, and whilst giving no clues to the author's life outside the orchestra (and why should it?) gives considerable insight into the life of an orchestral player, and the absolute commitment to playing music at the highest level wherever possible however many howlers that determination may provide along the way..worth searching out, but I doubt it is still in print.
