Heads-up for 7 September 2010

Inspired Minds
One to One with clarinettist Martin Fröst
Considered one of the world’s leading clarinet soloists Martin Fröst is renowned for his interpretations of the classical repertoire as well as contemporary works, jazz and Klezmar. Fröst appears regularly in leading music centres and with major orchestras through-out the world, including concerts with the Wiener Symphoniker, the Cincinnati Symphony, and Academy of St. Martin in the Fields - to name but a few. Among his most recent appearances was his performance in a televised gala concert from Stockholm Concert Hall celebrating the marriage of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Prince Daniel Westling, where he was the only classical instrumentalist. Martin Fröst is the Artistic Director of the Vinterfest in Mora in Sweden and co-director of the International Chamber Music Festival in Stavanger in Norway. In this week’s Inspired Minds Martin Fröst talks to Breandáin O’Shea about being an artistic director of festivals, his pride at being able to play some of the great repertoire of the clarinet and how taking risks is for him an important part of music making.

Auf den Tag genau ein halbes Jahr ist es her, seit ihr zuletzt von mir etwas gehört habt – so grüße ich euch um so herzlicher zum BtP Nr. 34, Aufnahmedatum 4. September 2010. Man könnte sagen: dies ist Brieftour-Pod #20 reloaded, denn schon im vergangenen Jahr habe ich live vom “Ba-Da-Boom” berichtet, dem Straßenmusik-Festival in der Innenstadt von Neumünster. Dieses fand heuer also zum zweiten Mal statt. Ich nehme euch akustisch mit zu einigen der Veranstaltungsorte. Zunächst aber erzähle ich auf dem Weg in die Innenstadt eine weitere Episode zum Thema “Ladensterben in Neumünster”: das Erofa in der Kieler Straße macht zu.
