Andreas Ottensamer: the Romantic clarinet

Guest Fri 8th March 2019

The Berliner Philharmoniker's Principal Clarinet on his album 'Blue Hour'

Andreas Ottensamer, joined by his colleagues in the Berlin Phil for Weber's First Clarinet Concerto and by the pianist Yuja Wang for music by Brahms, Mendelssohn and more Weber, basks in the 'Blue Hour', the title of his new DG album. James Jolly caught up with the clarinettist while he was In London for a concerto performance with the LPO to talk about the 'Blue Hour' and how he approaches making the transcriptions of songs and songs without words, as well as balancing the demands of orchestral musican, chamber musician and soloist.
