Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet
A cluster of red and white roses for "unity" could also represent the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet. "It is rare to hear man perfectly integrated with music..." wrote the Washington Post.
The Quintet, founded in 1988 under the baton of conductor Herbert von Karajan, has continued to work closely with the renowned orchestra's most recent conductors, Claudio Abbado and Sir Simon Rattle. The Manchester Evening News described the ensemble as "the best of its kind in the world," and many critics agree that it has virtually redefined the sound of the classic wind quintet.
