From the IDRS:

I have just received a phone call from an oboe friend who lives in Philadelphia. She told me that Louis Rosenblatt passed away Monday afternoon, August 24. Information about the arrangements will be posted here as soon as it becomes available.

The IDRS family mourns the passing of one of its most legendary members and extends its deepest condolences to his wife, Renate, and family.

From the IDRS site:

A native Philadelphian born in 1928, Louis Rosenblatt began to study the oboe with Nicholas Lannutti at the South Philadelphia High School for Boys. Later he became a pupil of John Minsker. After being graduated from high school, he was accepted at the Curtis Institute and became a student of Marcel Tabuteau. He joined the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1959 as assistant first oboe. When John Minsker retired from the Orchestra, Mr. Rosenblatt moved to the English horn position to fill the vacancy.
