In that time Mark has made a wealth of recordings, from baroque concerti under Trevor Pinnock with The English Concert for Deutsche Gramophone Archiv, to solo recordings of Purcell and Biber’s Sonatae Tam Aris Quam Audies Sevientes. Having recorded Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No 2 for the first time at the age of 21 with Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Mark has recorded the work a further 6 times with the likes of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Hanover Band and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. While the baroque trumpet takes up much of Mark’s time, he is no stranger to other types of music making. He has played as principal trumpet with major modern symphony orchestras (London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra), West End Musical orchestras (Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s Cats in the West-End), and in over 100 films, including Shakespeare in Love and Stargate.
As well as now living in Oslo, Mark has established many wonderful relationships with ensembles and artists in Norway, not just as trumpeter, but also as a conductor. Specialising in informed styles of performance, whether on original or modern instruments, Mark has conducted the NRK Radio Orchestra, Barokkanerne, The Norwegian Wind Ensemble and Kongelige Norske Marines Musikkorps amongst many others. Mark and Simon Munday both play baroque trumpets made by Matthew Martin and Norwich Natural trumpets.
