Daniel Ottensamer to replace his brother Andreas as the soloist at the next Festival Mozart Nits d'Estiu ‎concert

Clarinettist Andreas Ottensamer has been forced to cancel his concert on 8 July ‎‎with Barcelona Symphony Orchestra for health reasons. He will be ‎replaced by his brother, Daniel Ottensamer. Like Andreas, Daniel is one of the most ‎celebrated clarinettists on the current music scene. ‎
Daniel Ottensamer has been the principal clarinettist of the Vienna Philharmonic ‎and the Vienna State Opera since 2009. He has won top international prizes, ‎including the Carl Nielsen International Clarinet Competition in Denmark. ‎
As a soloist, he has played with orchestras including the Salzburg Mozarteum, the ‎Vienna Philharmonic and Tokyo's NHK Symphony Orchestra under the baton of ‎conductors such as Lorin Maazel, Gustavo Dudamel and Andris Nelsons, ‎among others. ‎

In the field of chamber music, he has worked with Daniel Barenboim, Angelika ‎Kirchschlager, Barbara Bonney, Thomas Hampson, Bobby McFerrin, Julian Rachlin and Mischa ‎Maisky and he is a founder member of the Philharmonix ensemble.‎

Daniel Ottensamer has made several recordings under the Sony Classical and Deutsche ‎Grammophon labels. ‎

The concert, conducted by Jonathan Cohen, will take place on 8 July at 7 ‎pm in L'Auditori's Sala 1, Pau Casals and it can be followed live on L'Auditori ‎Digital. The star feature of the concert is Mozart's Clarinet ‎Concerto, as well as Symphony No. 41 "Jupiter", also by the ‎Salzburg composer. The programme will be rounded off with the overture of The ‎Creation by Haydn and Symphony No. 3 by Fernando Sor.‎
