Raphael Haeger: a portrait
Percussionists have a special status in the orchestra – if only because many of them have their musical roots in jazz and rock music. But most of all because they have to master not just one instrument, but a whole arsenal – from vibraphone to castanets. All this is told in this portrait from the series “The Berliner Philharmoniker and their Instruments” of Raphael Haeger, who has been a percussionist with the orchestra since 2004.
