The Final Trumpet
The London Symphony Orchestra has produced a podcast review of the career of principal trumpet Maurice Murphy who retires after enjoying a 30 year career with them. Even if you don't think you know much about classical music you will have heard Maurice - to quote his wikipedia biography:
Maurice can be heard on film soundtracks including Gangs of New York, Johnny English, Reign of Fire, a solo in Mr. Holland’s Opus, all six of the Star Wars movies, Superman 1, 2 & 3, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Philadelphia, Batman, the Alien movies, Frankenstein, Gladiator, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and many more.
Its a good listen with plenty of great music, some fun insights into the world of brass bands, and for Star Wars fans of the completist variety an interview with John Williams.. More to the point it reminds us that podcasts can be successful as one-offs.
