Andy Milespress reviews

"Lyrical, with an incredibly soft attack, and inspired expression, the clarinettist Andy Miles performed the solo part of Carl Maria von Weber's Clarinet Concerto No. 1 in f-minor. Here, too, it was clear – especially in the area of tone colour – that he was very well prepared. His encore reminded us that Miles is also at home with other musical styles: Somewhere form Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story, wonderfully arranged for solo clarinet."
FAZ Kultur
"Miles laid his respect at the feet of Astor Piazzolla and Benny Goodman, with dream-like passages and a buttery approach."
Kölner Stadtanzeiger
"Especially the clarinettist Andy Miles, who began with clever arrangements of Baroque works by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and Antonio Vivaldi and then went on to Rolf Kühn's Interchange and Artie Shaw's clarinet concerto, outdoing himself, exceeding each highpoint with the next."
"The musician, famous for his bridge building between classical and jazz music, returned to Duisburg for Jazz at the Philharmonic and was greeted in the Mercatorhalle with ovation after ovation."
"The rare beauty of tone of his clarinet – shining and caressing, electrifying and inspiring – is representative of his exceptional inspiration."
Süddeutsche Zeitung
"Any encounter with the clarinettist Andy Miles is an impressive experience. Miles, the magician of the clarinet: classical, rocking, jazzy, sometimes smoky and cool ..."
Flensburger Tageszeitung
"Andy Miles enchants with his immaculate intonation, virtuoso technique and grandiosely cultured piano dynamics."
"First-class and stirringly played! Tonally and technically, this soloist effortlessly masters his instrument."
Ruhr Nachrichten
"Andy Miles presents a virtuoso mix of classical clarinet with jazz and a touch of klezmer. Vivaldi's Adagio – a conversation between Adik Abdourachmanov's flute and Andy Miles's clarinet – was an impressive demonstration of musicality, but also of the possibilities of modern adaptations of old music. Carl Phillip Emanuel Bach's Solfegietto demonstrated clarinettist Andy Miles' breakneck virtuosity."
