After the celebrated performance of all of Ludwig van Beethoven’s nine symphonies in Berlin, the Berliner Philharmoniker, under the baton of Simon Rattle, also played the cycle on tour – including in Paris and New York.
On Wednesday our solo oboist Jonathan Kelly suddenly felt unwell during the rehearsal and Dominik Wollenweber stepped in. For the second oboe position we were able to engage a young oboe student from Venezuela, who happened to be in the public. For Johnneil Francois Guevara a dream became true! For the concert, Albrecht Mayer stepped in. Happy end for everybody: Jonathan is back in good health meanwhile.
