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.
