Gábor Tarkövi: a portrait
Hardly any orchestral instrument is as exposed as the trumpet. In this film, Gábor Tarkövi – principal trumpet with the Berliner Philharmoniker since 2005 – explains that a trumpeter has to have good nerves. He also describes how the sound of a gold or silver-finished trumpet differs, and talks about his love of folk music and Mahler’s symphonies, in which the trumpet often has a special status.
