More changes ahead for Berlin Phil trumpets

We reported this morning on a new fifth trumpet in the Berlin Philharmonic.

But one principal trumpet wants to step back and the section is in the throes of generational change.

Watch Sarah’s hangout with Berlin Philharmonic principal trumpet Tamás Velenczei, at 31:00, for the inside story.

    • You are probably correct. I suspect this is the position for which young Florian Pichler (sp?) was not tenured.

      I recall hearing discussion about Tamas Velenczei moving to 2nd trumpet to replace Martin Kretzer a year or more ago.

      Interesting that
