In the spring of 2012, young wind players from around the country participated in master classes with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker as part of Carnegie Hall’s workshops and master classes. Over the summer, we will feature videos from these master classes on the Blog. Don’t miss your chance to learn from some of the world’s greatest artists by applying to participate in one of our workshops or master classes coming up next season.
This week, we feature Berliner Philharmoniker trombone player Thomas Leyendecker coaching Carson King-Fournier on Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries. Mr. Leyendecker describes the excerpt as full of dark energy and discusses articulation as a way to depict the character of this excerpt.
