"Lead trumpet players are rare birds; they must possess a faultless technique, a four-octave range, and be able to read anything perfectly at sight across the widest possible range of styles.  Michael Lovatt has all of these capabilities allied to a glowing, golden tone and the ability and authority to inspire not only a whole brass section but an entire orchestra.  He is also and good and kind man, qualities which shine through his joyous playing."
