Berlin Philharmonic principal horn is taking up conductingNews
Stefan Dohr is principal horn of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, has been since 1993.
But Covid-19 provoked second thoughts.
In his mid-50s, he took up conducting. He booked lessons with Paavo Järvi. He’s still beating. On the other hand, he keeps commissioning new horn concertos.
Stefan mentions that he never finished school. He’s looking for new challenges. ‘“I definitely don’t overthink things,’ he says, ‘I’m a horn player.’
