Summary "Stanley Drucker is recognized by the Guinness World Records for the longest career as a clarinetist. In 2009, he retired from the New York Philharmonic after a legendary sixty-one-year career with the orchestra. He has performed and collaborated with virtually every major conductor and concert artist of his time, and his career perfectly aligned with the golden age of the American symphony orchestra. In Stanley Drucker, Clarinet Master his fascinating story is told for the first time, from his beginnings in Brooklyn, New York, to his prominence as one of the greatest clarinetists in history."--Page 4 of cover.
