Andraud, Albert J (c.1885-1975) [publisher]
Albert Andraud was born in France around 1885. He served in the French Army in World War I and briefly traveled to the United States as part of an army band. Andraud moved to the U.S. in 1921 as the principal oboist for the Chicago Opera. He later played oboe in the Cleveland Orchestra before joining the Cincinnati Symphony in 1929. He played with that ensemble until his retirement in 1955. Throughout his career, Andraud became known as an expert on woodwind music and composed, arranged, and published numerous pieces of woodwind-centric chamber music and orchestral studies. He died on April 15, 1975 at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio.
