Senior VIP and Legend Solo Clarinetist in the New York Philharmonic Stanley Drucker Book, written by Mitchell Estrin, Signing Party at the New York Philharmonic Archives with VIP guests

New York City USA

                     In a special celebration marking the release of Mitchell Estrin's new Biography of his teacher, Orchestral Associate for over 20 years when the New York Philharmonic was on tour Internationally, and the book in preparation for over 5 years, the event was a resounding tribute to one the Philharmonic's own legends.  Musicians of stature from New York and a special attendance of John Corigliano, composer of the great Clarinet Concerto from 1977, dedicated to Drucker, Bernstein, and the Philharmonic, made a valuable evening.   Mr Estrin gave a heartfelt speech about the book, his relationship as a student at Juilliard with Stanley Drucker, and how it all made a huge difference in his life as a player and fully explains the loyalty to Dr Drucker.   The Preface to the book was written by John Corigliano who explained the influence Drucker had on him and his writing of the Concerto, which could be the most important Concerto in the 20th Century given the huge substance of thematic content in the 3 movements, one for Drucker, the  2nd movement,  Elegy to Corigliano's father, Concertmaster at the Phil, and the 3rd movement showcasing Bernstein and the Philharmonic.   It was a legend party which will be remembered far beyond this date.
