“One of the leading clarinetists working today.”
— The Independent (UK)
Born into a musical family in Vienna, clarinetist Andreas Ottensamer dabbled with the piano and cello before taking up the clarinet. The young Austrian prodigy has gone on to become principal clarinetist of the Berliner Philharmoniker, capturing audiences and critics alike with his diverse musicality and the singular beauty of tone that he coaxes from the instrument. He makes his North American recital debut in the Board of Officers Room with a program that perfectly showcases what the clarinet can do in a space that highlights the sheer beauty of chamber music.
