Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Striking original photograph of theÂ legendary conductor of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, boldly inscribed to Wilford Gunn,Â clarinetistÂ of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.

Signed during the period after his leadership of the Cincinnati Orchestra but before he took over in Pittsburgh, and shortly after beginning to teach at the Curtis Institute. Signed at the lower right in white ink by the photographer, Nickolas Boris.Â Despite one crease at the left edge, this is the finest signed photograph of Reiner we have seen.Â 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25.1 cm).
