Raymond Gniewek was born in November, 1931 in East Meadow, Long Island, New York. He studied at the Eastman School of Music, where Max Rudolf who was at that time an assistant manager at the MET worked with Gniewek. Max Rudolf also advised Gniewek of the Concertmaster opening at the MET. When in 1957 Raymond Gniewek was selected as Concertmaster of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, he was at age 25, the youngest Orchestra musician. Also, often the press said Gniewek 'the first American-born concertmaster', (or perhaps the second, 75 years after Nahan Franko). Gniewek was quickly both popular and respected by the public and his colleagues. It is said that during his career with the Metropolitan Opera, Gniewek led some 115 different opera scores. Gniewek married Metropolitan Opera star soprano Judith Blegen (1941 - ) in 1977. After 43 years at the MET, Raymond Gniewek retired in May, 2000, but remains active. He taught at the Tanglewood Music Center and the youth of the Verbier Festival Youth Orchestra in Switzerland. Invited by Seiji Ozawa, Raymond Gniewek was also Concertmaster of Tokyo Opera no Mori Orchestra each Spring during the mid-2000s. Admired by James Levine, with whom Gniewek played for 29 seasons, Levine told New York Times writer Anthony Tommasini '...The single luckiest thing that happened to me since I have been at the Met is that Ray Gniewek was the concertmaster.' In the same article, Gniewek explained part of his art: '...It's my job to make technical translations of the desired sound. And you have to show, not tell, because the same words can mean different things to different people.' 42 Following his decision to retire from the MET, Gniewek agreed to remain an additional season to assure the smooth transition to his successor Concertmaster, Nick Eanet. After 43 seasons leading the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Raymond Gniewek made a lasting impact on the qualities of the orchestra. Working closely with James Levine, and particularly during the period from about 1980-1996, a very fine opera orchestra was transformed into a group equal to the world's leading symphony orchestras.
