They are unique. Naturally, every symphony orchestra has its cello section. But nowhere else in the world have the deeper, larger strings joined together to form an independent ensemble - an orchestra within an orchestra - meeting with success after success. That is why every music lover knows immediately where the "12 Cellists" come from, even if they cannot name their orchestra. They are an institution. They have played together since 1972, appearing as an ensemble, occasionally in Berlin, often elsewhere, and quite often traveling great distances.
The Concert with the 12 Cellisten of the Berliner Philharmoniker took place at the First Moscow International Cello Festival in the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. It was organized by the Moscow State Philharmonic Society and was dedicated to the memory of Mstislav Rostropovich.
