Philadelphia Orchestra Brass

I just dug up this great video from 1969 (the Ormandy days!) with the Philadelphia Orchestra Brass. The members are listed below.

Although the quality of the video is lacking, I really enjoy this peek into the past. I like especially Gil Johnson trying to "concisely" explain the intricacies of a fugue to a television audience. Even with the quality of the video, you hear the unification in sound and time with these orchestral players. This is a similar ensemble to the Pittsburgh Brass in my last post. I quite like the added tenor/bass voice.

Gil Johnson and Seymore Rosenthal, trumpets
Nolan Miller, horn
Dee Stuart, trombone
Tyrone Breuninger, euphonium
Abe Torchinsky, tuba
