We announce the release of Andreas Ottensamer’s new album Blue Hour: Mendelssohn Edition. Ottensamer comments: “Mendelssohn’s Songs without words have been part of my musical life for a very long time. As a kid I really loved listening to them! Arranging some of them for my Blue Hour album, opened up a wonderful world to me, and with the beginning of lockdown a few months ago, I again took the time to re-visit and to enlarge the collection of these arrangements. Now I’m taking the next step by arranging pieces for clarinet and strings discovering a universe of possibilities. Our very personal collection of Mendelssohn’s Songs without words hopefully brings to life different sides of this wonderful music.”
The album is set for release 18 June 2021. Listen to the first pre-release track Mendelssohn: Lieder ohne Worte, Op. 62: No. 6 Allegretto grazioso “Spring Song” now!
