    If I’m not mistaken, that photo was taken during playback during the recording of the Samuel Barber Piano Concerto with seated from left to right, John Browning, George Szell, and Samuel Barber. That must have been an exciting place to be that day.

  • Will says:

    No, the person on the far left of the photo is Paul Myers.

    • DanP says:

      You’re right, that is Paul Myers – although at that angle he DOES look Browning from a decade or so later. That’s Browning on the right. Also, standing right in back is Rafael Druian who was a great concertmaster – although we didn’t have him in New York as long as he was in Cleveland.

    Notice Leon Fleisher and Gary Graffman sitting in the background…..
