An Orchestra Musicians Odyssey A View from the Rear
1 in stock
All musicians, young and old, will be fascinated in reading Milan Yancich’s, “An Orchestra Musician’s Odyssey” (A View From the Rear). It is an account of a French Hornist’s experience meeting and performing with many of the great musicians of this century covering all facets of a concert career.
The following personalities are a small part of his musical journey: Bohumir Kryl (world famous cornet soloist of the past); William D. Revelli and Howard Hanson (music educators); Philip Fardas, Arnold Jacobs, Adolph Herseth (artist performers and teachers); Carl Geyer (horn maker); Wayne King (dance band leader); Pierre Monteux, Fritz Reiner, Bruno Walter, Leopold Stokowski, George Szell (conductors).
Mr. Yancich illuminates vividly and authentically some of the darker aspects of the veiled often misunderstood undemocratic world of the professional symphony player. Some fifty famous and not so famous conductors are candidly assessed.
