No-one could have predicted that the six-year-old Berten would ever be a professional musician. Not the musical antecedents in his family, but the local woodwind and brass band Sint Caecilia, which wanted to expand its membership base, led to his first flute lessons, given by the conductor…a clarinetist!
He amazes everyone when he, following his Latin-Greek education, decides not to go to university but to choose for the conservatory. His mother and father were not cheered with enthusiasm, especially when the principal flute of the radio orchestra of Stuttgart, discouraged Berten, because not convinced of his talent as a flute player.
