I am trying to find any information on a person I have been told was the conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic. This person's last name was Garagusi and he would have been the conductor some time between the years 1910 and 1970. Is there any type of book, document, or a web site, that gives historical information on the Philharmonic?
Mr Einari Marvia and Mr Matti Vainio have written/edited the book about the history of Helsinki Philharmonic:
"Helsingin kaupunginorkesteri 1882-1982" (WSOY 1993, ISBN 951-0-18312-1).
I browsed briefly through the book but I couldn't find any mentioning of a person by the name of Garagusi there, I'm afraid. My advice for You is to try to contact the administration of the orchestra directly. They propably have some more detailed archives/files of their own and can possibly help You to locate the longed-for Garagusi there, if he should have visited the orchestra as a guest conductor, for example. The homepages of Helsinki Philharmonic are located at:
