Lawrence Tarlow

Artists

Librarian, Speaker
Lawrence Tarlow

New York Philharmonic Principal Librarian Lawrence Tarlow got his start when, as a tubist in the Roslyn (Long Island) High School Band, he streamlined the system for handing out music at rehearsals. He attended The Juilliard School as a student of Joseph Novotny, former Principal Tuba of the New York Philharmonic, and graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music, where he was student orchestra librarian. Before joining the Philharmonic in 1985, he served as librarian of the Berkshire (now Tanglewood) Music Center Orchestra, worked for the music publishers C.F. Peters Corporation and G. Schirmer, Inc., and became the Oklahoma Symphony’s first full-time librarian in 1977. During his 1979–85 tenure as librarian of the Atlanta Symphony, he also played the occasional second tuba part, including a recording of the Berlioz Requiem under then-music director Robert Shaw. Mr. Tarlow, who cites a love of “esoterica and trivia” as one of the reasons he enjoys his job, is an active member and former three-term president of the Major Orchestra Librarians’ Association.
