Quote from: techniquest on June 20, 2007, 01:57:24 PMIt's an odd thing though - composers write symphonies but no one writes philharmonies. I wonder why?
QuoteThe Concert Orchestra is indeed specialized in "lighter music". The S is in London, the P in Manchester. That's the only real difference.
Quote from: Bonehelm on June 20, 2007, 05:38:11 PMBPO certainly has more than that. Just look up their Mahler videos...huge orchestra and chorus.
Quote from: pjme on June 20, 2007, 07:44:00 AMI know, I know, it is nitpicking ...but : I count 124 members at the Berlin PO.....( incl. 4 Konzertmeister;,excl. 3 or 4 open posts)....see: http://www.berliner-philharmoniker.de/de/orchester/
Quote from: M forever on June 27, 2007, 07:22:25 AMThe concept of the "orchestral academy" was introduced by the BP in the early 70s (it was actually Karajan's idea) because they found that many graduates from music schools were very good, but not quite ready yet. So they started that.It provides young musicians who are already very good, but who need some more experience and routine, with an opportunity to bridge that critical time between studying and working full time, and it allows them to "shape" young musicians and integrate them into the orchestra. Plus, it provides them with a pool of extra musicians they can draw from any time since the academists play with the orchestra regularly, sometimes almost full time when there are open positions.The academists do not automatically become members after 2 years, they still have to take part in the auditions when positions are open. Some of them stay, some of them get jobs in other good orchestras.That concept has been picked up by many other orchestras and opera houses, so most of them have similar insitutions now.
