Robert E. Myers died in Los Angeles on March 12, 1976 at the age of 63.
Two classical labels in one company resulted in confusion in the marketplace. Capitol ultimately eliminated Cap-EMI, naming Robert Myers as Artist and Repertoire Director of Angel Records. Until 1974, Myers was responsible for the release schedules, marketing strategies and manufacturing sound quality for all Angel recordings in the United States. While collaborating with its EMI parent and other subsidiaries within the greater EMI organization, Angel Records in the United States exercised considerable autonomy in deciding how to meet the demands of the American classical market.
While heading Melodiya Angel, Myers was credited with the introduction of music that had not previously been known in the United States, including Shostakovitch’s The Execution of Stepan Razin and Prokoviev’s film score for Ivan the Terrible. In addition, Myers secured the landmark 1973 release of the first recording ever made of Rachmaninoff’s Vespers, Op. 37, also known as the All Night Vigil, Op.37 by Alexander Sveshnikov with the State Russian Choir (at the time known as the USSR Academic Russian Choir). In the March, 1974 issue of Stereo Review, reviewer Abram Chipman observed that previously only excerpts of the work had been available on record. Chipman wrote: “The Melodiya recording was the serendipitous discovery of Angel’s general manager Robert Myers while on a trip to the Soviet Union. Once he tracked down the recording, he had to prevail rather heavily on the Soviet powers that be to make it part of their trade agreement with Angel.”
Among the achievements during Myers’ tenure was the 1966 creation of the Melodiya Angel label, led by Capitol’s President Alan W. Livingston. Under Capitol’s contractual agreement, Capitol Records had exclusive manufacturing and distribution rights for recordings made in the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War. The agreement made previously unreleased recordings by Soviet-controlled artists including David Oistrakh, Sviatoslav Richter, Emil Gilels and Mstislav Rostropovich available in the United States. Robert Myers decided which records would be released under the agreement, and was responsible for liaison with Soviet officials, artists and recording experts.
During his Angel tenure, Myers was also responsible for the selection of music for The Story of Great Music and Concerts of Great Music, a twenty-two volume set issued by Time-Life Records in collaboration with Angel from 1966-1968. The series covers the history of classical music from The Early Renaissance through The Music of Today. Sample titles include: The Baroque Era, The Age of Elegance, The Age of Revolution, and The Spanish Style. Each box set includes four to five long playing LPs with an accompanying book on the art and history of the respective era, as well as a “Listening Guide” for each recording. Upon Myers’ death in 1976, The Story of Great Music was noted as “the best selling series of classical records in history”.
From approximately 1966 to 1971, Bob Myers represented the classical music field as an elected member of the Los Angeles Board of Governors for the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), which hosts the Grammy Awards among other recording industry endeavors.
Myers produced several other notable recordings during his early career. These include: The Spanish Guitars of Laurindo Almeida, the 1960 Grammy winner Best Classical performance Instrumental Soloist or Duo; Conversations with the Guitar with Laurindo Almeida, Salli Terri and others, which won the 1960 Grammy Award for Best Classical Performance Vocal or Instrumental-Chamber Music; the Grammy-nominated Music for the Harp by Marcel Grandjany; the Roger Wagner Chorale’s 1955 Folk Songs of the New World featuring a solo by the young Marilyn Horne on “He’s Gone Away”; the Roger Wagner Chorale’s 1956 Gold Record Joy to the World; and the Hollywood String Quartet 1953 recording of the Creston String Quartet, Op.8 which earned the acclaim of the composer. Paul Creston wrote to Myers: “I am tremendously pleased with the performance and reproduction of the work. Would you…convey my deepest appreciation and gratitude to the Hollywood String Quartet for their splendid execution.”
At the first Grammy Awards ceremony in 1959, five separate recordings produced by Myers were nominated in the classical categories. Three recordings were awarded the first Grammys in their respective categories. Duets with Spanish Guitar with Laurindo Almeida, Salli Terri and Martin Ruderman won Best Engineered Classical Recording. The 1959 Grammy for Best Classical Performance, Chamber Music was awarded to the Hollywood String Quartet for the Myers produced Beethoven String Quartet No 13 in B flat Op. 130. Also that year, the Roger Wagner Chorale recording Virtuoso won the Grammy for Best Classical Performance, Operatic or Choral. Virtuoso was co-produced by Myers and Ralph O’Connor.
In 1955, British based EMI acquired a 96% ownership interest in Capitol Records. EMI classical recordings previously released in the United States by RCA Victor were ultimately contractually transferred to the Angel label, distributed by Capitol. While still a producer, in 1958 Myers assumed the additional responsibility as Classical Coordinator, assuming administrative responsibility for all Capitol and EMI classical releases (called Cap-EMI and Angel respectively).
Myers joined Capitol as classical sales promotions manager in 1949, the year that marked the company’s first foray into the field of classical music. In 1952, Myers assumed responsibilities as a classical producer. During his tenure, Myers produced albums by Hollywood String Quartet, Felix Slatkin, Laurindo Almeida, Carmen Dragon, Roger Wagner Chorale, Marcel Grandjany, Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra, Leonard Pennario and Salli Terri, among others.
