Professor of Horn and performer Myron Bloom

WFIU’s Featured Artist for the month of August is horn player Myron Bloom.  Known for his distinguished career as a performer and teacher, Bloom was appointed Principal Horn of the Cleveland Orchestra under George Szell from 1954-1977, and has been professor of horn at the Jacobs School of Music since 1985.

Before his tenure with the Cleveland Orchestra, Bloom was Principal Horn of the New Orleans Symphony.  He was appointed Principal Horn of the Casals Festival Orchestra in Puerto Rico in 1977 and was Principal Horn of the Orchestre de Paris under Daniel Barenboim until 1985.  Bloom has performed at the Lucerne Festival under Claudio Abbado and has been a member of the Marlboro Music festival from its inception.

As a teacher, Myron Bloom has held positions at some of the world’s leading music schools and conservatories.  He taught at the Curtis Institute of Music from 1982-2001, Carnegie Mellon University from 1993-2001, and was the chairman of horn studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music from 1961-1977.  He has also taught at the Oberlin Conservatory, Boston University, Conservatoire National Superieur de Music de Paris, and the Juilliard School of Music.  He has been a jury member at the International Geneva Horn competition and served on juries in Canada.

An avid recording artist, Bloom’s performances of Richard Strauss’ Concerto No. 1 in Eb with the Cleveland Orchestra under Szell and Schubert’s Auf Dem Strom and the Brahms Horn Trio with Rudolf Serkin and Michael Tree, have been released on the Sony Classical label.

WFIU will feature performances by Myron Bloom in our classical music programming throughout the month of August.
