2008 recording of Pictures, subject conductor and group.

I know Mr. Olka can be heard on the Prokofiev 5/Kije around this time. Anyone know what else?

Tough one, 8vb. There were a lot of different players in at that time, in addition to Chris - Tony Kniffen, Dave Kirk, Pete Link, Carson McTeer. Pete and Carson were the primary ones and from what I remember, that was right around the time when Pete left for Japan and Carson came to town. Odds are it was Carson.

It was Pete Link on the Pictures recording. He used a Nirschl York and did Bydlo on an Alexander F. I asked him this many years ago.

Hi Gents,

I indeed had the privalege of playing on that recording. The Alexander F used on Bydlo was borrowed from Floyd Cooley. A wondeful instrument and(for better or for worse) we got it one take...thank god. The Nirschl I bought from Floyd upon his retirement with the SFSO and still own today.

The highlight for me was listening to Mark Ridenour's (Chicago Symphony) playing principal trumpet. What a sound! Sound, phrasing and presence all top notch. The Cincinati Symphony put out several fantastic recordings on the Telarc label.

Incidentally, I was later informed that recoding won a Grammy that year.

Cheers, Pete

Yes, they sure did put out some great recordings. They did many of the Bruckner Symphonies with Telarc and their recording of 8 and 9 is stunning in the precision and homogeneity of brass playing. Philip Collins was their Principal Trumpet for many years and his tone was absolutely beautiful on everything.

I bumped into Mark at a Ravinia rehearsal (probably) fifteen years ago.
He played in Memphis for a while previous to that (and - I believe in one of the Florida orchestras after Memphis), and I played some brass quintet jobs with him when he was in Memphis.
He was a great player at that time, but - to my ears - his style has developed more since (as one would expect).

Most are not aware that Mark is a very talented arranger.
