An excellent recording of the '47 version.
Can anyone confirm that Will Scarlett plays !st on this?
Doesn't really sound like Herseth, but still exceptional playing!
Apparently, recording sessions for Brandenburg and L'Histoire were done around the same time with Levine - all on RCA.

Interesting question. I always figured that Bud was playing on that one, so I listened to it again right now. Whoever plays 1st sounds fantastic!

For some reason this cd was only released in Japan. On Amazon it currently sells for $600! I'm glad that I ordered a copy some years ago for around $20. Same for the cd that has that Soldier's Tale recording.

The one recording that to my ears doesn't sound like Bud is the Boulez Firebird recording from 1992, but I certainly could be wrong about both of these.

From a friend of mine who studied with Will Scarlett

He's not familiar with this recording, but he had lunch with Bill several months ago and Bill told him this story.

"""""He (Bill) said the best compliment he ever got was from Avis Herseth. She told him when she closed her eyes, she couldn’t tell the difference between Will and her husband. """""Pretty high praise!

I'm sure someone could call Will and ask him directly.
