Shown on stage in this image is the highly accomplished CBSO Youth Orchestra, made up of talented young musicians (aged 13-21) from the Midlands who have just performed (with stamina, collective skill, and enormous clout where required) Mahler's colossal 6th Symphony. Conductor Jac van Steen can be seen among the musicians on the left, arms raised, and they all seem to be looking towards and applauding the principal timpanist; yes, he was outstanding!

Hammer? The large cubic box is behind the harps, and the shaft of the hammer itself is propped up to the right of the harps. The result was VERY audible!
