A night with Die 12 Cellisten der Berliner Philharmoniker

July 2012 │ Taiwan

With Deutsche Bank's commitment in Arts & Music, we are proud to be a sponsor for Die 12 Cellisten der Berliner Philharmoniker's 40th Anniversary Concert in Taiwan. They conducted two performances, one in Kaohsiung at Kaohsiung Cultural Centre on July 4 and the other in Taipei at the National Concert Hall on July 5. Both were sold out successes with a total audience of more than 3,800 enjoying the two-hour long concert.

The 12 Cellists played one of their most important works, Hymnus, as the opening piece in the concerts, followed by Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 1, Piazzolla’s Adios Nonino, Libertango, and Fuga y misterio, The Beatles’ All my Loving, arranged by Shigeaki Saegusa, Morricone’s The Man with the Harmonica, Miller's Moonlight serenade, Duke Ellington’s Caravan, and other crossover works. The mixture of depth and lightness appealed to audiences of all ages.



It was a memorable night for the musicians and the audience but it was also a meaningful charity event. The Bank invited 55 visually impaired students, underprivileged music students and low income families to attend the concert, who would otherwise not have the chance to do so.



The concert was a huge success and ended with a standing ovation from the audience, cheering for the 12 Cellists' fabulous performance.
