David Buck mentioned in LA Phil gala broadcast
I only got to hear the end of tonight live broadcast of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's gals - carried on KQAC 89.9 - and I heard David Buck's solo passages in Márquez's "Danzón No. 2." You may recall that Buck was the principal flutist of the Oregon Symphony from 2005 through the end of last season. Now Buck is Mr. Dudamel's number 1 piper, and he sounded really terrific over the radio. The broadcast commentators noted that at the end of the Danzón, Dudamel signaled special attention for several members of the orchestra and Buck was mentioned. Bravo!
