Alexander von Puttkamer: a portrait

Alexander von Puttkamer’s instrument puts him in a unique position with the Berliner Philharmoniker: since 2008, he has been the orchestra’s only permanent tuba player. In this portrait, he talks about how his love for the brass section’s deepest instrument slowly developed, and he demonstrates the importance in mastering the tuba of exercising the lips.
