I wouldn't want to record Daphnes on a 100 year old Clarinet or Bass Clarinet.
SF Sym tunes to A 441, SF Opera/Ballet, it's 440 or Fight.
German/Austrian Orchs are said to tune much higher, there was a problem with Berlin or Vienna playing in Davies Hall, and the Piano wasn't nearly sharp enough for them.
Cleveland prides them selves for maintaining 440, even while playing and gradually going sharper.
Yes, exactly. A while back John Marks mentioned Szell made Cleveland tune to an a=440 tone. So I listened to some of his records. They start right at 440 and gradually drift sharper.
