Berlin Philharmonic concertmaster is standing down

The orchestra is saying its goodbyes to Daniel Stabrawa, who is reitirng this summer after serving as concertmaster for 35 years.

Stabrawa, 65, was recruited by Karajan in 1983 from the Polish radio orchestra in his home town, Krakow, and promoted within three years to concertmaster.

The orchestra has made a little documentary with his parting thoughts.
