The Cellist

During intermission at a concert in the Berlin Philharmonic , I met this gentleman as we waited in line at the bar. Over a glass of wine he told me that he was also a musician - a cellist in a five man chamber music group.

"Not at this level," he said, pointing a finger up toward the concert hall, "but we have a rather full schedule and enjoy playing together".

I told him about my portrait work and asked to take his photo.

Just as I was about to find out more about him and his group, the chimes rang for us to go back to the concert.

A true gentleman with an interesting face, to boot!
