Abstract:

Daniel Bonade, Swiss-born American clarinetist, teacher and writer, was born in 1896 in Geneva, Switzerland and began playing the clarinet at the age of eight. He studied at the Paris Conservatoire and in 1913 won the prestigious Premier Prix. In 1917 while touring the United States, Bonade was offered the principal clarinet position of the Philadelphia Orchestra. In 1930 he left the Philadelphia Orchestra and continued his orchestral career with positions in the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, the Columbia Broadcasting Symphony Orchestra, and the NBC Orchestra. As a faculty member of the Curtis Institute of Music, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and the Juilliard School of Music Bonade trained many successful clarinetists in the United States from 1920 to 1960. This collection consists of written, photographic, recorded materials, reeds and reed cases, and personal items created or collected by Bonade; brochures, programs and photographs of his wife, Maud Bonade La Charme; and programs, photographs and memorabilia of his parents, Louis and Esther Bonade.
