Ending a 60-Year Gig at the N.Y. Philharmonic

"Mr. Drucker, 80, will soon enter something bigger than folklore. Legend maybe? History? He is retiring from the Philharmonic after 60 years, the longest tenure of any player in the orchestra’s existence. His departure foreshadows another changing of the guard: the music director, Lorin Maazel, also ends his tenure this season."

For the full story, please see the New York Times. To listen Mr. Drucker's recordings, please see the Library Catalog.
