The Berliner Philharmoniker’s official tour blog

A fast reacting concertmaster: In the rehearsals for Prokofiev’s 1st Violin Concerto in Suntory Hall, the orchestra played a trick on soloist and concertmaster Daishin Kashimoto and played the first few bars of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto instead of the Prokofiev. But Daishin Kashimoto was not at all fazed and also started in with the Mendelssohn concerto - with a response time of just 2 bars! As you can see from the video, everyone enjoyed the joke - and it’s good to know that our concertmaster has such nerves of steel!

Reaktionsschneller Konzertmeister: Bei den Proben zu Prokofievs 1. Violinkonzert in der Suntory Hall wollte das Orchester dem Solisten und Konzertmeister Daishin Kashimoto einen Streich spielen und spielte statt Prokofjew die ersten Takte zu Mendelssohns Violinkonzert. Daishin Kashimoto ließ sich davon allerdings überhaupt nicht aus der Ruhe bringen und setzte – bei einer Reaktionszeit von nur 2 Takten! – ebenfalls mit dem Mendelssohn-Konzert ein. Wie man sieht, hatten alle ihren Spaß. Und wie gut zu wissen, dass wir einen solch nervenstarken Konzertmeister haben!
