Beauty and Passion.
Andreas Ottensamer has held the coveted position of Principal Clarinet of the Berlin Philharmonic since 2011. Through his orchestral work, concerto, recital and chamber music performances, he is now one of the most in-demand clarinettists on the planet. He brings his sensitive artistry and liquid tone to Mozart’s divine Clarinet Concerto.
English conductor Mark Wigglesworth has an enviable reputation as a musician of immense artistic integrity and is renowned for his masterly interpretations. His commanding control and passionate insight will bring Elgar’s dramatic First Symphony to life.
“… when the summer’s highlights are recalled this superlative performance of Elgar’s First Symphony by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Mark Wigglesworth will surely be near the top. It had everything.” – The Times
