Andreas Ottensamer, clarinet

Lorenzo Viotti, conductor

 

Andreas Ottensamer’s clarinet whirls and dances, while it also carries a sophisticated wind sound. Praised for his sensitive musicality, his beautiful tone and his versatility, his rendition of Mozart’s well-loved Clarinet Concerto is an impressive demonstration of his brilliant playing and dazzling presence.

 

One of the most sought-after conductors of the young generation and the Gulbenkian Orchestra’s principal conductor, Lorenzo Viotti won the Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award and the Cadaqués Orquestra International Conducting Competition aged just 25. The International Opera Awards selected him as “Newcomer of the Year”. In 2017, Lorenzo Viotti conducted at the Salzburg Festival and shared the podium duties with Christian Thielemann at the 50th anniversary of the Salzburg Easter Festival for a concert in honour of Herbert von Karajan. Lorenzo Viotti has now been appointed chief conductor of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and the Dutch National Opera. The Opéra National de Paris and the Metropolitan Opera New York await him.
