“We portray our personality through our playing.”

He was only 21 when he became the first clarinettist of the Berlin Philharmonic, when in 2009 he swapped his studies at Harvard for a scholarship at the Orchestral Academy of this prestigious body. He is now 30 and is one of the most popular musicians of his generation with more than 50,000 fans on Facebook, which attracts mainly young audiences like a magnet. He was the first solo clarinettist in history to sign an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon. He has worked with Janine Jansen, Sol Gabetta and Yuja Wang, with whom he toured the world last year, including a stop at New York’s Carnegie Hall. He began playing the clarinet when he was 13, following in the footsteps of his father and brother, who are linked to the competition – the Vienna Philharmonic. Today he is a world celebrity in classical music, so we can safely assume that the new season will open in great style.
