Yeah, the sound quality isn't great on that one, I think just some person recorded it off a TV broadcast, but I like it because of the incredible aspect that he played it LIVE in concert- how gutsy was that?  There maybe were a few spots that were rough around the edges, but it just made the tension that much more palpable and the seemingly impossible parts that were executed flawlessly that much more exciting.  Just my taste/opinion of course.

Yes, it's sounds like a studio version.  I found a live one but the sound wasn't great.  Incredible playing.

Yeah, Mate Bekavac, pretty impressive player, isn't he? I can't even fathom some of what he does. There's a live performance of his version of Carmen Fantasy I like on YouTube I've listened to for years.  Is the link to the more studio version I think?  I'm not in a position to listen to it right this second.

But who's playing the music?

If anyone's interested it's Mate Bekavac, a new name to me but wow!

This is impressive on what looks like a Chinese 5 axis cnc mill.

But who's playing the music.  Giora Feidman?  Whoever it is, I want that recording.

As a general rule of thumb, if an A clarinet is not Chinese, it tends to be pretty solid.

Definitely a stencil, could be any number of manufacturers, I don't know all the Czech ones, you've got Kohlert, which later was transformed into Amati I think, Josef Lidl, probably a number of others...

Make and Model lists and research / Pruefer
« Last post by GrumpyMiddleAgedMan on April 01, 2021, 04:35:54 PM »
Might as well start a new thread.
I picked up a 2(4) piece plastic Pruefer festival model.  I know the serial number lists on the net are all numeric.  Problem i have is that the serial on this one starts with an e and as such i cant really nail down a production year.  E01294, the thing looks like brand new, i mean very light scratching and everything is shinny(only one broken needle spring).  Bell is stamped BD of ED NYC ESEA #1.  So it seems to be a school instrument out of the NYC school system which seems to have seen little to no service.  My best guess as far as the age, I am going to guess somewhere maybe late 60's the earliest to somewhere in the mid 70's.
Does anyone have any filler info they could supply?
