If budding cornet players want a role model, I can think of no better player than Richard Marshall. He’s a truly fine cornet player with a beautiful sound (tone and controlled vibrato, which he can vary), marvelous technique, artistry and virtuosity. I’ve heard him live and have been listening again to his latest highly recommendable CD “Blaze”, where he also shows the difference between his cornet and trumpet playing — all magnificently. In my ideal brass band I’d be very happy to have him on end chair. The only comparison I can make with current cornet players would be with David Daws. (In a blind test, I might in some ways confuse the two.) A couple of years ago I heard the young Philip Cobb play cornet solos and thought his sound was in a similar mould.
