Symphonic Klezmer

Portrait

The clarinet is as closely insolved in Klezmer as hardly any other instrument. For Andy Miles another great as well as challenging musical area.

The very demanding "Kli Zemer" by Paul Starer is symphonic, while "Odessa" is based on "Klezmer Traditionals".

These two titles are rounded off with the "Mélodies Hebraiques" by Maurice Ravel. Altogether, a very colored spectrum of Klezmer results.

 

Some of the videos show concerts with the Netanya Symphony Orchestra of a tournee through Israel, where Andy replaced Giora Feitman.

Andy Miles

Bio

 

 

Andy Miles studied classical clarinet in Bremen and Hanover, finally with Prof. H. Pallushek. In 1991 he was one of the youngest clarinetists in Germany to be a principal clarinetist, in the Hamburger Philharmoniker. Later he came to Cologne as principal clarinetist of the WDR Radio Orchestra.

Andy Miles is dedicated to chamber music and plays many solo performances as well. He is a sought-after teacher and plays concerts throughout the world.

Time and again he breaks musical boundaries and builds musical bridges. His "wild" past as a Saxophonist in Rockbands, as a Tinwhistlespieler in Folkbands, as a Clarinetist in various Jazzbands and, last not least as the Soloclarinetist of the Philharmonic State Orchestra Hamburg and Soloclarinetist of the WDR Radio Orchestra Cologne, allows him to move effortlessly through different music genres.


 

The press gave him the title: "Marco Polo of the clarinet" - a type of a new generation.
