Years ago when I used to see the brass band marching on Sunday mornings with that little boy at the front blowing so proudly on his trumpet, I would not have dreamed that the same little boy would one day be joining me on concert tours all over the world!
René’s youthful tone from then has matured into a powerful, impressive sound which comes through especially well on the higher notes. At home he has an amazing collection of trumpets in all sizes, materials, tones and ages. He knows everything about his instruments and has a library with virtually all the music ever written for the trumpet.
It was in the orchestra that he met his wife Virgine. At home they love to sit in the beautiful garden that René maintains all by himself. He is a real expert when it comes to gardens, as he knows all the individual plants, and can even lay complete paved areas himself.
