Christoph Hartmann: a portrait
Oboist Christoph Hartmann has been a member of the Berliner Philharmoniker since 1992. Born in Landsberg in Bavaria, he is the focus of the latest episode of our series The Berliner Philharmoniker and their Instruments. In the film portrait, we learn that Hartmann obtains his instruments from Paris, about the production of the mouthpieces by hand, and about the special expressive possibilities of the oboe: “We can play sad melodies incredibly beautifully.” The film also includes excerpts from works by Brahms, Bartók and Bach.
