Frankfurt snaps up Berlin Phil’s former trumpetmain
Florian Pichler, an Austrian, became the youngest player in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra when he won an audition for second trumpet in August 2014, at the age of 18.
But something went wrong. Two years later the orchestra refused to extend his contract and Florian set out to search a wider horizon in brass ensembles and symphony orchestras.
This week, he won an audition as trumpet in the Frankfurt Opera orchestra, together with the trombonist, Miguel Garcia Casas.
