 wonderful March 14, 2017 By David L. (chicago, IL) See All My Reviews "The recording is super. Mozart was right. The clarinet belongs in a symphony orchestra. We heard and saw Ottensamer in Berlin. His artistry on stage is as exciting as this recording. He is a real entertainer also. In Berlin he had the audience clapping in rhythm to the music. This was a staid and polite German audience until the music caught us all." Report Abuse
