Clarinet meets lute

Music by John Dowland, Henry Purcell, Giovanni Girolamo Kapsberger, David Orlowsky and David Bergmüller 

Der eine, David Orlowsky, ist einer der aufregendsten Klarinettisten unserer Tage, der einst mit seinem Trio Klezmorim legendär wurde. Der andere, David Bergmüller, ist einer der gefragtesten Lautenisten Europas, und sicher ist: Klarinette und Laute, das hat noch niemand kombiniert. Aber seit sich die beiden Davids im Internet kennengelernt haben und im anderen ihr musikalisches Alter Ego fanden, ist es klar: Hier erreicht eine musikalische Partnerschaft ganz neue Levels.

David Orlowsky


He makes his clarinet sing and does not shy away from musical experimentation. As a foster child of Giora Feidman, the Thuringian-born sound individualist honed his skills at the Manhattan School of Music in New York, among others, and has long been regarded as a trendsetter in world chamber music. With his trio Klezmorim, he has given klezmer music a new voice for over 20 years and has already been honoured with the ECHO Klassik Award three times.

David Bergmüller


Although one of the most distinguished lutenists in Europe, David Bergmüller began his career on the classical guitar. With subtle interpretations and compositions of early music, contemporary and electronic music, the Tyrolean has become a sought-after soloist and continuo player who has created a new cosmos of sound for the lute. After teaching in Graz, he was appointed as one of the youngest music professors at the University of Music and Dance in Cologne in 2018.
