Ernst Ottensamer is a highly sensitive clarinetist, who is a member of the Vienna Wind Ensemble. His account of the two Clarineth Concertos can hold its own against nearly all the competition, the Košice Orchestra also responds well to Johannes Wildner’s direction, and the recorded sound is very natural and well balanced. A real bargain.
"Ernst Offensamer is the excellent soloist in performances of Weber's two jolly Clarinet Concertos and Concertino, ably supported by the Czech State Philharmonic under Johannes Wildner. Great fun, and at a bargain price."
