cello (also Longines Symphonette under Mishel Piastro, National Symphony of Washington DC, Fracati Trio)

 

Studied at the Juilliard School. Pursued a successful career as a violinist before being forced to switch to cello due to a skin condition at age 35. Auditioning with Eugene Ormandy for the Philadelphia Orchestra, Ormandy asked "...'Whom did you study under at Julliard?' A sheepish Caserta had to admit he had studied the violin, not the cello, that he was merely self-taught on the cello. He could see his chance at the orchestra seat floating right out the front doors... Instead, Ormandy was impressed. 'I don't believe it' he exclaimed; 'This is amazing!' 168.

An interesting story of Dupuis: Upon his arrival as the new conductor of the San Francisco Symphony at the end of 1935, Pierre Monteux had the idea of bringing in an east coast oboe as Principal.  John Canarina in his excellent Monteux biography recounts: "...the Musicians Union lobbied in favor of promoting the second oboe, Julius Shanis, to principal.  The New York oboist [note: probably André Dupuis] duly arrived and for two days, Monteux listened to both him and Shanis during rehearsals.  Finally, he decided Shanis should get the job..." 215
