Late in 2012 I was fortunate to be invited to photograph the Gustav Mahler Jugend Orchester as they rehearsed Sibelius’s 7th at the Gulbenkian Musica in Lisbon. These are some of the finest young musicians in the world. Because it was a rehearsal, I was able to get in quite close, not always possible in full performances.
