Cologne, Germany -

Raul Maria Dignola will represent Germany in Eurovision Young Musicians 2016 and will play the French horn. Raul's composition of choice for Saturday is Mozart's second concerto for horn and orchestra.

"I love this composition", he says, "It shows all the colours of the French horn, it's a genius work". According to Raul, the French horn allows the musician to play a broad range of compositions; "I love the sound of the instrument, there are lots of great repertoires that can be played".

When asked what he is most looking forward to in this competition, Raul said that he is looking forward to the experience. "I am very proud to represent Germany and be together with all these nice people", he added.
