GENE POKORNY - INTERVIEW NOW AVAILABLE

Post by tubalux »

Hi Tubenet

I'm in Chicago and will be live streaming Gene in an interview with Sarah Willis (horn in the Berlin Phil) as part of the legendary 'Horn Hangout' series this afternoon.

We'll be live with Gene at 6pm Chicago time.

Hope you can join us - your chance to ask Gene all your questions via the live chat.

Fantasic. Seriously, this was great fun to watch. No BS, but also an entirely personable and humble guy.

That's interesting that Barenboim preferred the sound of the BBb. I wonder what type of tuba it was Gene had then?

I'm not sure, but he's been showing off a Big Mouth Brass BBb lately.

[on this tangent] I let one of the Marine Band's tubists noddle on my VMI 3302 5-valve BBb once, and he remarked that if such a nice-playing BBb tuba had been available when he was in college, he would've never switched to CC.

Just watched this hangout the other night, and I am so thankful to have Gene as one of the top-end Tubists of our time and of all time. He has been such an inspiration to me, and to others. Thanks so much to Sarah Willis and crew who went out to make this interview happen, brought me almost to tears at the end to hear him reminisce about his years with Chicago. I've always wondered and still wonder almost everyday when he WILL retire, I hope he stays for much longer, as long as he can hold up. Keep hanging in there Gene! You are still playing great, and old Arnold would be so proud :)
