Rainer Seegers: a portrait

In the summer of 2019, Rainer Seegers said goodbye to the Berliner Philharmoniker, where the timpanist had been a member for 33 years. In our film portrait, the musician explains the technical and tonal characteristics of his instrument and talks about his relationship with the orchestra. He also reveals his second great passion besides music: collecting butterflies.
