Pianist Yuja Wang and clarinetist Andreas Ottensamer will perform on the 18th KotorArt Don Branko’s Music Days during two concerts, on August 7 in Lustica Bay and on August 9 in the Church of Sv. Spirit in Kotor. Tickets for this concert, called Magic of the Blue Hour, are pre-sold, in limited quantities at discounted prices at kotorart.me and in Tobacco S Press kiosks. This eagerly anticipated concert is part of the exclusive world tour of these two artists, on the occasion of the promotion of the new CD released for the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon publishing house.
Both artists have already featured at the Festival with great success. Yuja performed in two concerts last year with violinist Leonidas Kavakos and percussionist Martin Grubinger. Andreas Otenzamer performed with our celebrated guitarist, Miloš Karadaglic and accordionist, Ksenija Sidorov, in 2016, in the unique atmosphere of Luštica Bay.
“Through long-term cooperation with the KotorArt festival, Lustica Bay has established a sound basis for cultural and artistic development, which brings us an extraordinary world music experience every year. To our great satisfaction, two top musicians, Yuju Wang, and Andreas Ottensamer will have the opportunity to perform this year in a beautiful setting of Luštica Bay… “said Slavica Milic, Senior Marketing Executive Luštice Bay.
Since 2011, Andreas Ottensamer has been working as the first clarinetist of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. As an exclusive artist of the Publishing House Doyce gramophone, he recorded the album Portraits – The Clarinet Album (2013), Brahms – The Hungarian Connection (2015), and the New Era compact disc for Deka Klasik Publishing House (2017).
Yuja Wang, a pianist, who is known by the unique piano technique, musical thinking and emotional depth. She has been involved as a resident artist in prestigious halls like the Carnegie Hall in New York and Konzerthaus in Vienna. She uses her love for fashion as a “weapon” in changing attitudes about concerts in concert halls.
