60 years of the BPO

In 1942, the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra is sixty years old. In the midst of WW2, it is obviously unthinkable that the event could be celebrated as the fiftieth anniversary had been.

At least the orchestra publishes a small brochure at the return from the summer holidays; very interesting with hindsight, as its writing reflects the highlights and taboos of the moment.

This eighty-year-old document had been acquired at the time by Marie-Luise Lüdeling, music teacher in Berlin-Lichterfelde. Thank you, Madam.
