Andreas Ottensamer & Kelemen Quartet

Play Mozart and Brahms quintets

Two beloved masterpieces of the chamber repertoire, performed by some of today’s most distinctive, charismatic young musicians.

Principal clarinettist with the revered Berlin Philharmonic, young Austro-Hungarian performer Andreas Ottensammer is a leading international clarinet soloist, noted for the singular beauty and sweetness of his sound.

The young Hungarian Kelemen Quartet won one of chamber music’s most prestigious prizes, the Premio Paolo Borciani, in 2014. The foursome is one of the most electrifying chamber groups playing today, delivering fiery, vivid performances of great subtlety and depth.

They join forces to perform two cherished chamber classics, both inspired by the expressive beauty of the clarinet. Mozart’s exceptionally melodious, virtuosic Clarinet Quintet is both celebratory and tinged with melancholy. Ottensamer and the Kelemen players bring a full-blooded, authentically Hungarian spirit to Brahms’s gypsy-tinged, autumnal Clarinet Quintet.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
