Berlin. Sein Cello hat Rudolf Weinsheimer bereits vor Jahren beiseitegestellt. Und so ganz genau kann sich der frühere Philharmoniker nicht daran erinnern, wann er zuletzt ein Konzert der „12 Cellisten“ besucht hat. Dabei ist Weinsheimer der maßgebliche Gründer des international bekannten Ensembles, das sich bis heute aus der Cellistengruppe der Berliner Philharmoniker zusammensetzt. In seiner Generation war Weinsheimer der Cellist Nr. 7.
