... and take the assistant chair in Cleveland
I would think getting to play principal on a regular basis is more fun than 4th/utility. Are you thinking maybe he should have stayed and gone for the second chair? If so, yeah, you'd have a point.
wasn't Sullivan associate in NY
Yes he was.
Your question is basically unanswerable except by way of conjecture. If you really want to know, I suggest looking up Mr. Sullivan and asking him.
Sheesh, you're probably right. I thought he was 4th. Things change around so much more quickly today I can't keep track of these folks.
Quick, who makes up the Trumpet Section in Minneapolis
I can tell you that there was never any public statement by Mr. Sullivan explaining his reasons for wanting to play in the Cleveland Orchestra. So unless he comes on here himself to explain, any information you would attain through this thread is conjecture, or worse, second- or third-hand information. See the "sticky" on Gossip for further clarification.
What we are trying to avoid here is a "Well I heard..." environment, where unchecked information about people at the highest echelon of our profession can be put forth on the World Wide Web as factual. I'm sure you meant no harm in your inquiry, but my guess is you're trying to find out what the personal reasons were for Mr. Sullivan's move. Maybe some participants will volunteer some answers to you via private messages, but they won't be posted on this forum.
As for conjecture, the Cleveland Orchestra is pretty good! Maybe he just wanted to play there.

I hope it is better than today's NY Phil
hahaha.....well Cleveland is a top-rate orchestra with top of the line trumpeters, IMO. Of course I also feel that way about the NYP, but you are certainly entitled to your opinion.
Don't we all wish we were as good as Mr. Sullivan to even have such choices.
