Notes and Editorial Reviews

Just a few years into his career, Christoph Zimper found himself the solo clarinetist with the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, and in great demand as an orchestra- and chamber musician. In 2018 he decided to leave the orchestral jobs behind and find out how to express existential matters – like an 'intensely perceived moment', for example, 'that may look perfectly unremarkable from the outside' – in a musical language of his own. Or how one might use musical means to get Millenials – to which he belongs himself – to ponder the eternal questions of life. Here now is Zimper’s fascinating debut album as a composer, for which he has asked a selection of hand-picked soloists, the Eggner-Trio, and the group Plattform K+K Vienna to join him in the studio.
