Andreas Ottensamer: a portrait

In this portrait from the series The Berliner Philharmoniker and their Instruments, Andreas Ottensamer, principal clarinet with the Berliner Philharmoniker since 2011, explains the characteristics of his instrument which was made specifically for him in Vienna, the differences between Austrian and French clarinets, and talks about the specific challenge of fading notes and making them appear as if from nowhere.
