A Listing of the Musicians of the Cleveland Orchestra 1918 until Today

 

This is a listing of all musicians identified so far who were permanent, contracted members of the Cleveland Orchestra since its founding in 1918.  Their name, instrument and dates of service, as well as titles are given.  Where a musician played more than one instrument, a separate listing, with dates, is provided for that musician.  I have also begun to add birth and death years, where known.

 

Sources for this information include 'Fanfare: Portraits of the Cleveland Orchestra' 17 and my personal files and updates, as well as Donald Rosenberg's fine book The Cleveland Orchestra Story, 'Second to None' 1.

 

If you should have updates or corrections to the data listed below, please contact me at the email address given below. .  (** note that in the 1919 photo above, the Cleveland Orchestra is performing in Grays Armory, but the Cleveland Orchestra had already moved most concerts to the Masonic Auditorium the month before this November, 1919 photo.)

1  A very useful source for the Cleveland Orchestra is Rosenberg, Donald The Cleveland Orchestra Story, 'Second to None'.  Gray & Company.  2000.  ISBN: 978-1-886228-24-5.  Recommended, yet, in the latter sections of the book, it has the hothouse flavor of inside politics, with a tone more reminiscent of the opera house in Vienna or La Scala, rather than Cleveland, with good guys and bad guys. Lorin Maazel receives a relentlessly negative treatment, and the executives and the trustees of the orchestra are seen, mostly, in an unfavorable light. These relentless depictions (not too much nuance here) can sometimes become fatiguing, but still, a useful book with careful research, and an interesting read.
