Dominik Wollenweber: a portrait
The cor anglais, is given important solo passages in works by composers such as Richard Wagner, Hector Berlioz and Dmitri Shostakovich. Since 1993, Wollenweber has dedicated himself to this soulful instrument with the Berliner Philharmoniker. In this film portrait, he speaks about the character of his instrument, the painstaking, hand-crafted production of the mouthpiece, and the challenge of appearing in Digital Concert Hall broadcasts in front of thousands of spectators.
