After 60 Years With NY Phil, First Clarinetist Says Goodbye

Stanley Drucker, the New York Philharmonic’s first clarinetist, “has played with the Philharmonic for the past 60 years, or nearly one-third of the orchestra’s history. When he retires at the end of June, he will have played in more than 10,200 concerts. And Drucker will be going out with a bang, including with one of his signature pieces, the Clarinet Concerto by Aaron Copland.”
