Rex Richardson (*1969)


Rex Richardson

Renowned as a performer and composer of new, genre-busting music, Yamaha Performing Artist Rex Richardson has been called “One of the finest virtuosos of our time” (Brass Herald) “a standout soloist with the power, range and flexibility to rival Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw” (DownBeat), and “among the very best trumpet soloists in the world today” (Journal of the International Trumpet Guild).

A professor at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) since 2002, he has served as International Tutor in Trumpet at England’s Royal Northern College of Music and at Austria’s JAM Music Lab University.
