André, Maurice, famous French trumpeter and pedagogue; b. Alès, May 21, 1933. After working as a coal miner as a youth (1947–51), during which time he took up the trumpet, he pursued formal studies with Barthélémy at the Paris Cons., receiving the Prix d’Honneur. He was first trumpeter in the Lamoureux Orch. (1953–60), the Orchestre Philharmonique de l’ORTF (1953–62), and the orch. of the Opéra-Comique (1962–67) in Paris. In 1954 he made his formal debut as a soloist in Paris; then won the Geneva (1955) and Munich (1963) international competitions. From 1967 he pursued an international career as a trumpet virtuoso. He also taught at the Paris Cons. (1967–78) and gave master classes at home and abroad. His exhaustive repertory ranged from works from the Baroque era to contemporary scores. Among composers who wrote works especially for him were Blacher, Jolivet, and Landowski.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
