Stanley Drucker joined the New York Philharmonic as a clarinetist in 1948 at the age of 19. Since then over 40 million people have attended his concerts and his sixty year tenure earned him a Guinness World Record for the Longest Career as a Clarinetist. Mr. Drucker left the Philharmonic at the end of the 2009 season, and performed the Copland Concerto at the age of 80. He said “A musician never retires. I’m a player and I’ll always play.”
The Heritage Collection showcases live never-before-released chamber music performances from 1972-2004 and includes pieces from Claude Debussy, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Igor Stravinsky and more. I was one of first 250 to reserve my limited edition set and received an autographed copy!
