Orchestra Academy of the Berliner Philharmoniker Is Renamed Karajan Academy
From now on the Orchestra Academy of the Berliner Philharmoniker will be called the Karajan Academy of the Berliner Philharmoniker.

The members of the association voted unanimously in favour of the
name change proposed by the board, which has already been entered in the register of associations.

Peter Riegelbauer, manager of the Karajan Academy and double bassist with the Berliner Philharmoniker, explained: “The change of name is a tribute to the contribution of Herbert von Karajan,
with whom the long success story of the Academy is inextricably linked.”

Karajan founded the Academy, the first institution of its kind in Germany, in 1972, out of concern about the next generation of musicians for the Berliner Philharmoniker.

Peter Riegelbauer added: “The Karajan Academy is an unmistakable cultural brand. The clear reference to its founder is an important step towards the perpetuation of the Academy’s outstanding performance record in the future.”

The Karajan Academy of the Berliner Philharmoniker trains highly talented young musicians from all over the world. Their teachers are primarily the concertmasters and section leaders of the
Philharmoniker.

As a rule, the students find positions with renowned orchestras after graduating from the Academy, the majority even in coveted solo chairs.

Approximately one-third of the current members
of the Berliner Philharmoniker are former students of the Karajan Academy.

The Berliner Philharmoniker unanimously supported the name change during an orchestra assembly.

Orchestra board member Ulrich Knörzer said: “The Karajan Academy is a fascinating symbiosis of the past, present and future. The long-established performance culture and unique sound of the Berliner

Philharmoniker are guaranteed for the future thanks to our Academy.”
