Playful, full of energy – master clarinetist Andreas Ottensamer and pianist Julien Quentin play like they want to drive out the current winter right now in their swinging and exuberant version of the first of George Gershwin’s Three Preludes for Clarinet and Piano! The performance indications for this little energizer call for rhythm and decisiveness – and that’s just what you will get from it. Enjoy!
“Musical moments” can be moments of memories or reflection, a retrospect of the past or an anticipation of the future, that are enriched by hearing or thinking of a special piece of music in that same moment. Further artists in the series include Daniel Barenboim, Yuja Wang, Nadine Sierra, Avi Avital and Albrecht Mayer just to name a few.
