On September 4th, 2020 the new album Clarinet Concertos by our clarinetist Sebastian Manz will be released.
With compositions by Carl Nielsen and Magnus Lindberg and together with the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken-Kaiserslautern he dedicates himself to the exciting musical worlds of the far north.

The Finnish composer Magnus Lindberg himself conducted the recording of his clarinet concerto, while Dominik Beykirch conducted the works of the famous Danish "national composer" Carl Nielsen.

With Nielsen's Serenata in vano Sebastian Manz also performs a rarely played, fascinating work in an unusual quintet line-up of clarinet, bassoon, horn, cello and double bass.
