Top French timp plays his last Rite

Benoît Cambreling bowed out this weekend as principal timpanist of the Orchestre National de Lyon after 45 years with, as you’d expect, a well-timed Sacre de Printemps.

Benoit, who is 63, has a formidable international following. Since 2011 he has been professor of percussion in Shanghai.
