Jewish Museum & Archives of BC. Item L.00112 – George B. Zukerman, internationally acclaimed solo bassoonist 1951.

This portrait shows Greater Vancouver solo bassoonist, George B. Zukerman, in his prime in 1951. There are online bios of GBZ available here and here (and elsewhere). Here is Zukerman playing his “calling card”, Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto in B-Flat Major (First Movement), among a very enjoyable variety of other listenable numbers by him and other artists, as he guest-hosts CBC Radio’s This is My Music. It is worth a listen if only for the pleasure of hearing a master story-teller at work!
