About this Item

1 sheet 23 x 15 cm. The program consisted of the Cornell Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Karel Husa, performing Debussy's Prelude: L'Après-midi d'un Faune; Glazunov's Violin Concerto in A Minor with Sheldon Kurland on violin; J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto no. 2, featuring Adolf Scherbaum on trumpet, William Browder on flute, Theodore Lowi on oboe, and Sheldon Kurland on violin; Mozart's Symphony no. 31; and an excerpt from Smetana's Ma Vlast. Scherbaum's signature is in blue across the upper part of the program. Trumpeter Adolf Scherbaum played an important role in the revival of the Baroque trumpet. On this program he played the piece with which he was most associated, the second Brandenburg Concerto. The following year Sheldon Kurland moved to Nashville, where he became a session musician who worked on recording sessions for many country music stars. The flute in the Brandenburg was played by prominent mathematician William Browder, who was at the time Cornell University associate professor of mathematics. The oboe was played by Cornell professor of political science Theodore Lowi. In Very Good Condition: one vertical crease through the middle; clean and intact. Bookseller Inventory # 002274
