    The 12 Cellists of the Berliner Philharmoniker

Attending dance events must be avoided in the current situation. So much the better that in this new episode of the Berlin Phil Series, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker perform works based on the sometimes thrilling, sometimes melancholy rhythms and harmonies of tango, ragtime and waltz. In addition to unusual instrumental pairings such as that of cello and percussion, there are also Philharmoniker chamber music groups such as the Feininger Trio and – in an archive recording with tangos by Piazzolla – the 12 Cellists.
