RSB-MENTORED ORCHESTRA:
DEUTSCHE STREICHERPHILHARMONIE

The best string players aged 11 to 19 from the Federal Republic’s music schools meet several times each year in the Deutsche Streicherphilharmonie (DSP) for phases of rehearsal and concerts with their musical director Wolfgang Hentrich, guest conductors, and soloists of international repute. Since the ensemble’s foundation in 1973, string musicians from the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin have been committed to teaching its members, their intense work with the individual sections helping to create the DSP's characteristic, fully homogeneous string sound. Some RSB musicians played in this, the youngest German repertory orchestra themselves in the past – and so traditions continue between these mentoring and mentored orchestras officially certified by the Jeunesses Musicales.
