This is the first of a new series of Wednesday night concerts from Germany, brought together by Deutsche Welle.

From classical to modern music and jazz: clarinettist Andreas Ottensamer likes to try out new things. That makes him a perfect fit for this year's Schwetzingen festival and its motto Neuland, which means fresh territory or new country. As the artist in residence at the Schwetzingen festival, Andreas Ottensamer performs in three very different concertos.
