Janne Saksala: a portrait

Although it is difficult to overlook the symphony orchestra’s largest instruments, the significance of the double bass is often underestimated. As we learn from Janne Saksala in this film portrait, they give decisive rhythmic and articulatory impulses. “Without a bass, there’s no music,” explains the Finn who has been 1st principal double bass with the Berliner Philharmoniker since 1994.
