Berlin Phil

Want to hear some astonishing tuba and bass trombone playing? These guys must have almost unlimited air capacity. Whew! To be a great orchestral low brass player is to be
super human.

I have watched that clip MANY times before, and it still impresses me. I've seen the Berlin Phil live twice, and they were great. When I saw them play in Berlin, it was just surreal -- I was literally on the edge of my seat, and I have no recollection of what they played. Watching them in NYC was also great (they played Bruckner 9). The brass players all held masterclasses at Julliard earlier in the day, and I went (to watch) Alexander von Puttkamer's class.

He's a very good teacher, and as you'd probably expect, a really down-to-earth and easy to talk to person. I said hello after his class ended, and he was a very nice and genuine person.
