2/8/19 - Yuja Wang (Piano) with Andreas Ottensamer (Clarinet)

The piano is a perfect instrument to work together with other instruments!  In this video, you'll see Yuja Wang (one of classical music's biggest stars) performing a piece by the German composer Felix Mendelssohn along with clarinetist Andreas Ottensamer. Listen for the moments when the piano and the clarinet are playing the same melody together, and compare how that sounds to the moments when the piano plays harmonious lines that move independently from the clarinet.
