Polish-born violinist Stabrawa first joined the orchestra in 1983 and became concertmaster three years later.
He will be retiring at the end of the 2020/21 season.
Stabrawa began his career in his native Kraków and was appointed concertmaster of the Kraków Radio Orchestra in 1979. While performing with the Berlin Philharmonic, he performed as a concert soloist on many occasions.
In celebration of his commitment, the Berlin Philharmonic is sharing a tribute film on their digital concert hall. The film features Stabrawa discussing his thoughts on his time with the orchestra.
