"David has the ability to fit into an ensemble with charm and elegance. But it is his outstanding capacity to have a dramatic effect that enthralled us. He can pull the rug out from your day and flip your world upside down with a confronting muse. His performance of 'Impass' a work for solo trumpet about 'how the Wombat got a flat nose' had the entire room captivated and we still reminisce about that performance 9 years later. A transformational moment that will never be forgotten."
