Biography/History

Oliver Daniel was a composer, music producer, and musicologist, who wrote a biography of conductor Leopold Stokowski in 1982 and was working on an unfinished biography of conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos at the time of Daniel's death in 1990. Daniel had conducted more than 180 interviews with over 120 individuals from 1982 to 1989 while researching the biography. Daniel's longtime partner and executor of his estate Donald Ott sought an author to complete the biography and made Daniel's oral history transcripts and notes available to author William R. Trotter, who completed the book, Priest of Music: The Life of Dimitri Mitropoulos, published by Amadeus Press in 1995.

Oliver Daniel was born in De Pere, Wisconsin on 24 November 1911. He studied piano and taught at the Boston Conservatory, 1936-1938 and at Marot College, 1939-1942. He was a member of the Charles Ives Society and vice president of the board of directors from 1973 on. He edited The Harmony of Maine, 1949;  Down East Spirituals, 1949; and  The Music of William Billings, 1943-1967.

Oliver Daniel first met Dimitri Mitropoulos when Daniel was producing classical music radio broadcasts for NBC, ABC, and CBS. Daniel left CBS Radio in 1954 to accept a position as vice-president and director of concert music administration at Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) where he worked until his retirement in 1976. He also co-founded Composers Recordings, Inc., served as Chairman of the Board of American Composer’s Concerts, Inc. and Chairman of the Board of Young Audiences.

Dimitri Mitropoulos was a Greek pianist, composer, and conductor, who achieved international acclaim as the conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, and the Metropolitan Opera. He was born in Athens, Greece in 1896 and died in Milan, Italy in 1960.

Scope and Contents

Oliver Daniel’s oral history interviews and research materials cover all aspects of Mitropoulos's life and career, including his early life in Greece and his conducting positions in America as principal conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, principal conductor of the Robin Hood Dell Orchestra (the summertime designation of the Philadelphia Orchestra), music director of the New York Philharmonic, and principal conductor of the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Daniel interviewed musicians who played and sang for Mitropoulos, conductors who were mentored by him, and composers whose works Mitropoulos premiered and championed domestically and abroad.

During two trips to the conductor's homeland (1984, 1985), Daniel conducted interviews with those who knew Mitropoulos in Greece, including Katy Katsoyanis, Konstantinos Kydoniatis, John Papaioannou, Michalis Semsis, and Theodore Vavayannis. Composers whom Daniel interviewed include David Amram, Milton Babbitt, David Diamond, Ross Lee Finney, Morton Gould, Ernst Krenek, Otto Luening, Gian Carlo Menotti, George Rochberg, Ned Rorem, Roger Sessions, and others. Some of Daniel's most extensive interviews are with conductor James Aliferis, composers David Cooper and David Diamond, conductor James Dixon, and record producer Nick Nickson. In addition he interviewed friends, former secretaries, music librarians, orchestra managers, music critics, and a pair of restaurateurs from Mitropoulos's favorite New York City dining establishment.

Of note are the FBI files on Dimitri Mitropoulos, which Daniel went to some lengths to procure. The FBI's interest in Mitropoulos seems to have resulted from statements he made in the late 1940s regarding censored Soviet composers as well as his support of presidential candidate Henry Wallace of the Progressive Party. Also of interest to Daniel was Mitropoulos's seemingly repressed homosexuality. Daniel wanted to address the issue in the book and stressed with his interview subjects that he wanted to do it carefully and respectfully, but that the whole story of the conductor's life needed to be told. Daniel's interviews reveal numerous examples of Mitropoulos's generosity, helping to support the educations of a number of aspiring musicians in particular. Daniel made numerous attempts to interview the composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein. Given the initially close ties between the two conductors and their eventual falling out over rumors that Bernstein sabotaged Mitropoulos's chances at a post with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and was behind his ouster from the New York Philharmonic, it was an interview that Daniel dearly wanted but never received.

Other materials researchers might expect, but which are not to be found in the collection, include the complete interviews and correspondence with Mitropoulos's long-time American secretary Faith Reed, who decided not to participate in the book project once it had been handed over to William Trotter; the notes or drafts of Mitropoulos biographer Louis Stanley, which neither Daniel nor Trotter were able to track down; the files of Mitropoulos's European secretary Trudy Goth; those of Mitropoulos's agent and New York Philharmonic manager, Arthur Judson, who destroyed his files; and the letters from Mitropoulos to Greek benefactor and friend Maria Negroponte, who likewise destroyed her material, deeming it too personal to be shared with the public.

In addition to the extensive collection of oral history interviews, Daniel collected clippings about Mitropoulos and the interview subjects, as well as copies of correspondence with the Maestro, and biographical works written by other authors. Many of the files include correspondence between Daniel (and also Ott) and the interview subjects. Transcripts of most of the interviews were made by Ott and some of them include indexes to the subjects covered. Finally, the collection contains the original cassette recordings of the oral history interviews (and some musical performances) and one box of photographs which Daniel had intended to use in his book.

Scope and Contents note

Oliver Daniel's filing arrangement has been preserved, including the numbers he assigned to individual oral history interviews and the dates conducted. Files may include oral history interview transcripts, reminiscences, clippings, programs, research notes, correspondence, reviews, and photographs, as well as other material described in the folder title. Several biographical works of the conductor are included under "Mitropoulos, Dimitri." Files which identify that an oral history interview had been completed, but which lack a transcription, are indicated by the phrase "transcript not included." Folders and folder labels prepared by Daniel, but without content, have been retained and are near the end of the series. Also at the end of the series are reviews, collected by Donald Ott, of William R. Trotter's book, Priest of Music: The Life of Dimitri Mitropoulos, published by Amadeus Press in 1995
