This new recording — like its earlier companion CD Portrait of an Artist — showcases the incredible artistry, musicianship, and teaching of Arnold Jacobs, legendary tubist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra 1944-1988. This unique audio portrait is comprised entirely of recordings of Jacobs’ voice from master classes, lectures, and interviews, combined with rare recordings of Jacobs as soloist, brass ensemble member with CSO colleagues, and home practice recordings. The accompanying booklet discusses the enduring legacy and contributions that Arnold Jacobs made to the field of brass teaching and orchestral performance.
