Abstract:

Edna Phillips discusses her career as a harpist with the Philadelphia Orchestra beginning in 1930; Stokowski's choice to include women musicians in the Orchestra; his ability to build an orchestra; performing Alban Berg's Wozzeck; Stokowski's rehearsals; comparisons between Toscanini and Stokowski; an anecdote about Bruno Walter and Albert Wallenstein; Carlos Chávez as a conductor; Stokowski's relationship with Rachmaninoff; and traveling with the All-American Youth Orchestra in 1940. She describes Stokowski conducting the orchestra of the School District of Philadelphia in 1960 when he returned to guest conduct in Philadelphia and his ability to get a great sound from young players, and she discusses her husband Samuel Rosenbaum's relationship with Stokowski as a member of the board of directors of the Philadelphia Orchestra. She also mentions Steffy Goldner Ormandy, Eugene Ormandy, Martha Graham, George Szell, Fritz Reiner, Edward Bok, Nicolai Berezowsky, and the Salzedo Harp School. Daniel and Phillips also discuss BMI (some of the conversation is not recorded) and mention the young composer Donald Jenni.
