Minnesota Orchestra, 1950s

Postby AHynds » Thu Oct 12, 2017 2:08 pm

Does anyone know who the tubist was for the Minnesota Orchestra, ca. 1950-60? I've been listening to a lot of older orchestral recordings, and I am really enamored with the so-called "Mercury Living Presence" recording technique (3 mics, spanning the orchestra, 12-15 feet above the conductor's podium). There's a great collection of Dorati's recordings during this time with the orchestra, found here: https://open.spotify.com/album/0Z7NdLxnwbTgP2XhgCfVmu

Information from Dave Fedderly on the likely player in question:

The Darling Of The Thirty-Cents-Sharp Low D♭'s.
