This video features a recording of Vic Firth performing Also sprach Zarathustra with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. This recording was made in 1971 and features the Boston Symphony conducted by William Steinberg.
The first time I met Vic Frith was at a PASIC in Anaheim. It was the last day of the convention and I needed to buy some Gary Burton Vibe Mallets. He helped me pick mallets. Just giving me the time to talk mallets will be something I will very forget.
