The young Australian musician Harry Ward has won a position in the first violinis of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. He was recruited from the training orchestra, the Karajan Akademie.

    As was Spanish-Polish violinist Roxana Wisniewska this week.

    I don’t believe it has been called the “Karajan Academy” for some time. But congrats to him.

    It’s always a bit curious that nearly every article as a conspicuous typo; in this article we get two: 1) violinis and 2) Philharmoniv.

    I’ve often wondered if these typos are planned in the hopes that Google will catch them and match them to a typo-Googler and, ta-da, SD has a new viewer.

    Bravo, bravissimo!
