Sarah Willis of the Berlin Philharmonic

Sarah Willis is a British-born horn player who became the first female brass player in the Berlin Philharmonic. She is not one of the orchestra's principal players but she is a fabulous musician and very articulate and personable when it comes to talking about music.

In this video she is giving an abbreviated master class to horn players auditioning for the YouTube orchestra. She demonstrates and gives helpful tips about playing some of the repertoire. In this excerpt she concentrates on the Beethoven 9th symphony and Richard Strauss' Till Eulenspiegel. I suspect that any young horn player would find this video very useful.
