Rachel Helleur-Simcock: a portrait
Since 2009, cellist Rachel Helleur-Simcock has been a permanent member of the Berliner Philharmoniker, and was previously a member of their Karajan Academy. This portrait of the series “The Berliner Philharmoniker and their Instruments” shows the musician in symphony concerts and at work with her string quartet. Helleur-Simcock also describes her 18th-century Italian instrument whose sound she associates with wood and honey.
