• Berliner Philharmoniker Oboe Master Class – Brahms's First Symphony

    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 have been 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 oboist Albrecht Mayer coaching Mary Lynch on an excerpt from Brahms’s Symphony No. 1. In this video, Mr. Mayer discusses opening the throat to achieve a more resonant sound.
