Mourning for Wolfgang Schäuble

27 Dec 2023

The Berliner Philharmoniker mourns the loss of Wolfgang Schäuble - one of the most prominent German politicians of recent decades; he was closely associated with the orchestra. A founding member of the Board of Trustees of the Friends of the Berliner Philharmoniker e. V. from 1998, he retired from the organisation in June 2022 upon reaching the age limit. As a passionate concertgoer, Wolfgang Schäuble took an intensive interest in the orchestra's artistic work. We will greatly miss his valuable support and, above all, his friendship.
