The 12 cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic
The 12 cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic (Die 12 Cellisten der Berliner Philharmoniker) are the 13 cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic who perform and record as an all-cello ensemble.
Among the pieces they have recorded, Klengel's Hymnus for 12 Cellos, Op. 57, is an example of how each individual in a 12-cello choir can contribute a vital part of a musical whole.
As of August 2012, the members of the group are the 13 cellists from the Berlin Philharmonic.
