“40 Years of the Orchestra Academy” Gala Concert with Simon Rattle

Ten double basses, twelve French horns, sextuple woodwind: the orchestra with which Simon Rattle performed Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony on 2 December 2012 was certainly ample. But what was more remarkable was not its size, but the origins of the orchestral musicians. They were all former or current members of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Karajan Academy and came together for this concert to celebrate the 40th birthday of this renowned institution.
