Classical music is the basis, the foundation on which Andy and many other musicians build. Andy Miles was a solo clarinetist of the Hamburg Philharmonic, later on he became a solo
clarinetist in the WDR Funkhaus Orchestra and he recorded more than hundred CDs as a principal clarinetist.
Many of his concerts begin classical, e.g. with the clarinet concertos of Mozart or Weber. And in the classical world he stands for interesting projects.
Especially the project "Romanze" with the soprano Chen Reiss has provided international attention. Here Andy Miles recorded the "Hirt auf dem Felsen" by Franz Schubert and other
songs by Franz Lachner, Louis Spohr and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with the WDR Funkhaus Orchestra.
The CD with his duo partner Dirk Schultheis on the bassetthorn and the WDR Funkhausorchester is exceptional too. The concert pieces of Mendelssohn-Bartholdy are recorded in the
original version, "Il Convegno" of Almicare Ponchielli was sensitive orchestrated and on top the unknown and uncompleted quintet movement of Mozart is in this album.
