A License to Play – The Karajan Academy of the Berliner Philharmoniker

How do you actually become a member of the Berliner Philharmoniker? One particularly promising way is through the orchestra’s own academy, founded in 1972 by Herbert von Karajan. Here, outstanding musicians are methodically prepared for the work in a top orchestra. Our documentary presents this unique institution.
