The Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester has appointed Marina Grauman, 24, as first concertmaster. She starts next month.

Of Russian origin, Marina has been studying with Ulf Wallin at the Hanns Eisler School of Music and at the Berlin Phil’s Karajan Academy. She is a member of the ARD prizewinning Trio Marvin.

    That news has been waited! The post has been vacant since 2014 when Bernhard Hartog retires. Now It’s finally filled! Congrats Marina!

    And the fact that the same orchestra has two new principal horns. One of those is Paolo Mendes – ex solo horn of DSO (he returned) and ex-3rd horn of Berlin Phil!
