Exclusive: Berlin Philharmonic loses its American principal hornmain
Corks popped in December 2016 when David Cooper, principal horn of the Dallas Symphony, won the equivalent seat in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
Sadly, it hasn’t worked out.
David is returning to the US for what the orchestra describes as ‘private reasons’.
Auditions will be held in the next couple of months for both 1st and 3rd horn in the Berlin Phil.
