Channel 11 here in Chicago showed Cleveland playing the Strauss Symphony Fantastic with some good shots of Yasuhito Sugiyama playing a large rotary Bb. Anyone know what he played/plays?

Most likely it was a Bohland & Fuchs (B&F) BBb Tuba that he got at Walter Nirschl's shop.

I assume you mean Die Frau Ohne Schatten. The concert can be viewed here: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/the-cleveland-orchestra-centennial-celebration-full-film/9352/?button=fullepisode.

Probably...?

It showed the name in English, I only caught it briefly, and immediately started to confuse the name with the Berlioz piece. :D


The ending was really quite magical!

The link also mentions a work titled Symphonic Fantasy by Richard Strauss. Regardless, I am preetty sure the BBb tuba is the one picyured above.

There are photos of Mr. Sugiyama holding the tuba, as well as his Nirschl rotary valve F Tuba. I tried to post them but they were too large.
