School Orchestra Extravaganza 2008

At the Berliner Philharmonikers’ School Orchestra Extravaganza it can sometimes happen that the students are so excited they almost drop their instruments when Simon Rattle raises his baton to make music with them. But when, with a smile, he gives tips like “the violins sound too English, not sexy enough” or “the trombones are too soft, please, a bit like Schwarzenegger”, he wins the hearts of his young musicians in no time and dispels their fear of making mistakes.
