 Play the Name Game

I have an idea from another string of postings below (re: Festival Clarinet). Hopefully, the results can be educational for the readers of this BBS.

Not putting any particular emphasis on chronological order, list as many of the career classical orchestra clarinetists that you can. Any classical orchestra in the world qualifies. The only rule is that the person has (or had) to be a career clarinetist (5 or more years) with a professional classical orchestra, not a career soloist. Jazz doesn't count, either.

I'm going to start the game and expose my lack of knowledge at the same time, but at least I'll be honest...

Best Known Career Classical Orhestra Clarinetist: Simeon Bellison, with 30 years in the New York Philharmonic as Principle Clarinetist. Approximate dates of career: 1920s to 1950s.

I seriously doubt if anyone would question putting Mr. Bellison at the top of this kind of list. Let me know if I got at least this one name, position, and approximate dates of the career right or wrong. However, hang in there and play the game with me for the readers of this BBS who are not frequent Klarinet list readers.

Just because some folks are (or were) popular, that doesn't qualify them for this type of list. For example, Benny Goodman doesn't count for this particular list. He specialized in jazz and as a soloist. Stolzman doesn't qualify because he is a soloist. Ditto for Eddie Daniels for the same reason.

The goal of this game is to pick up names of lesser known but fantastically gifted and experienced clarinetists from around the world.

TIA (thanks in advance)
