The 12 Cellists of the Berliner Philharmoniker

50 Years of the 12 Cellists of the Berliner Philharmoniker

“The cello touches our feelings on a deep, unfathomable level” – a quote from the famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin who, without envy, recognized the qualities of the great instrument: its elegant body which is completely embraced by the player, its great lyrical quality that recalls a male voice, and the variety of its sound, which ranges from deep soothing tones to piercing, menacing heights. The 12 Cellists of the Berliner Philharmoniker are well versed in the special features of their instrument and have been bringing out its varied expressive potential for more than 50 years. With equal parts humor and depth, they take us on a journey through music history. Allow yourself to be carried away!
