About

Dirk Altmann plays the French clarinet equally as well as he plays the German instrument. By playing both instruments, this native Hannoverian seems to have fallen in love with the French capital.

In a very personal, recital-like compilation of works, all with a connection to Paris, he describes in music what it is that connects him with this large, cosmopolitan city. In a natural, almost child-like manner, and yet at the same time very artistically, he expresses his declaration of love: he even arranges some works himself for his chosen combination of instruments.

With such virtuosic yet subtle playing, alongside his colleagues Mako Okamoto (piano), Ryutaro Hei (double bass) and Anne-Maria Hölscher (accordion), time flies for the listener. And so a portrait of Dirk Altmann is unwittingly gained from a portrait of Paris.
