Notes & Reviews:
The Clarinotts, made up of father Ernst and his sons Daniel and Andreas Ottensamer, release their self-titled major label debut. Ernst and Daniel are solo clarinetists at the Vienna Philharmonic and Andreas is the solo clarinetist at the Berlin Philharmonic. The album features some of the most virtuosic music written for clarinet - arranged for 2-3 soloists and orchestra/piano - with repertoire ranging from Mozart to Bonfá's film music classic "Manhã de Carnaval."
The Times, 22nd January 2016
The Ottensamers, who play their distinctly Viennese instruments with terrific brio, sound delightfully animated and some of the ensemble work is so virtuosic that it sounds as if there must be at least four of them rather than three.
