Solti Chicago Tubist- Tchaik 4

Postby Keith Sanders » Thu Apr 21, 2011 10:41 pm

Hey Everyone,

I ran across this video on Youtube and have no idea who this is on tuba. If this is really Chicago then I am stumped, because it is not Jacobs or Pokorny... But some really tasty tuba playing nonetheless....

That would be Rex Martin.

Wow!! He had quite a bit of hair back then!!! And what a monster sound, definitely different than the York, but still a really great sound!! That just shows why he is such a reknowned teacher and player.

Thanks,

Awesome performance.

Is Rex Martin playing on a Rudy Meinl here, I wonder...?

Rudolf Meinl 4/4 CC would be my guess,
has that classic Rudy Bell flare shape.

It is a Rudy, but the RM50 (5/4) which he still plays today. Very nice instrument...great performance.

At least my reception of that video has very compressed and distorted audio, and it's difficult to hear much more that basic pitch.

Tuba players who can push those 5/4 R.M. tubas tend to get an "Alex-on-Steroids" sound out of them. (I like it, and I also like other types of tuba sounds as well.)

I'm partial to this CSO rendition (better trombone playing, imo). The fidelity (though far from perfect) is better as well.

I concur, although the audio is so sketchy on the Solti video as to make comparison difficult.

I have this on DVD and its one of my favorite recordings of this. Did you notice that all 3 players are on straight tenors? YIKES :shock:

I think Rex Martin may have also performed on a CBS recording of the same piece with the CSO and Abbado. I'm not positive though. Better audio than youtube.
