• Berliner Philharmoniker Flute Master Class - Beethoven's Leonore

    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're featuring 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 principal flutist Andreas Blau coaching Amanda Sparfeld on Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3. In this video, Mr. Blau discusses intensifying the piano espressivo with more vibrato to add life to the phrase.
