Biography Timeline


Guy Touvron was born on 15 February 1950 in Vichy, France. While his parents were not musicians, his grandfather played the cornet. At the age of ten Touvron started playing the cornet, and after a few years he became proficient on both the cornet and trumpet. In 1967 Touvron enrolled at the Paris Conservatory of Music and studied under classical virtuoso trumpeter Maurice André. A year later the Conservatory awarded Touvron first prize for cornet, and a year after that, first prize for trumpet.


Touvron held the position of principal trumpet for the Orchestre National de Lyon between 1969 and 1971, and for the French Radio Philharmonic Orchestra between 1971 and 1974. In 1973 he formed his own group, the Guy Touvron Brass Ensemble, and became a faculty member of the Lyons Conservatory in 1974. In 1990 Touvron began teaching at the Conservatoire National de Région in Paris. He regularly conducts master classes around the world, including at the Juilliard School in New York City, and at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.


Touvron features on over 70 recordings, has given over 3,000 concerts, and has won several prizes, including three international Grands Prix in Munich, Geneva and Prague. In the early 2000s, Touvron wrote a biography on his mentor Maurice André entitled Maurice André: Une trompette pour la renommée (Maurice André: A Trumpet for Fame), which was published in 2003.


Asteroid 278197 Touvron, discovered by French astronomer Jean-Claude Merlin in 2007, was named in his honor. The official naming citation was published by the Minor Planet Center on 5 January 2015 (M.P.C. 91792).
