Andreas Ottensamer has captured audiences and critics alike with his musicality and singular beauty of tone. Since its release last month, his debut album ‘Portraits – The Clarinet Album’ has already garnered some great reviews.
The Sunday Times called it “…a superior debut disc that, more than displaying the instrument’s scope, proposes it as a stylistic kaleidoscope”. Classic FM made it its Album Of The Week and praised Andreas’ “…dark and beautifully warm instrument, played with soulful depth.” The Swiss Sonntagszeitung called it “the solo debut of the year…an impassioned, forceful musician with an expansive, expressive singing tone.” In addition the blog Entartete Musik commented: ‘’What all the works afford… is a showcase for Ottensamer’s natural lyrical flair. There is wonderful ease to his playing, as notes are allowed to sound without the adornment of fussy phrasing.’’
Andreas is currently touring in Germany with concerts in Hamburg, Würzburg, Johannisberg, Weinberg and Berlin. Then its off to Australia for him!
