Andreas Ottensamer presents a dazzling selection of the clarinet’s early repertoire from 18thCentury Mannheim, with works by and C.P. Stamitz, Mozart and Danzi, together with the Kammerakademie Potsdam. Featuring duets with Albrecht Mayer and Emmanuel Pahud – two of the great wind soloists of our time and Ottensamer’s friends and colleagues at the Berliner Philharmoniker.
“It’s fascinating to think that Mannheim inspired so many composers and musicians, and it was the players themselves who made it happen – it gave them the chance to do their own thing. Every aspect of composition, playing, teaching and conducting was concentrated there, and audiences went wild, blown away by the kind of rock-star ensemble that they heard.” – Andreas Ottensamer
This is Andreas Ottensamer’s debut album on Decca Classics– the first clarinettist to sign exclusively to the label in its 89 year history.
