Naxos was saddened to learn of the death on Thursday 28 October of the great Maurice Murphy, the trumpet soloist in Naxos’s acclaimed recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by DePreist (8.557990). In 2007, Maurice retired from the LSO after 30 years as its Principal Trumpet. A podcast was made to celebrate his time in the LSO, and includes interviews with Maurice’s wife, family and colleagues, as well as the man himself. Listen to the podcast
