Quote of the week: Finally, a few years ago, after listening to a Tchaikovsky recording made by the Leningrad Philharmonic under Mravinsky in the orchestra’s prime, I asked a professional trumpet player how the uniquely Russian trumpet sound was achieved. I expected a technical reply involving some mystique around mouthpiece profiles and embouchure practice. He said, "They blow like buggery".
