The “Reichsorchester”

In 2007, the Berliner Philharmoniker celebrated their 125th anniversary. Film director Enrique Sánchez Lansch took this occasion to tell a hitherto unknown chapter in the history of the Berliner Philharmoniker: the years of National Socialism from 1933 to 1945. The film, The Reichsorchester, made in collaboration with musicians of the orchestra and its archive, caused a stir in cinemas around the world.
