Artist's official website
FROM CLASSICS TO JAZZ
Andy Miles studied classical clarinet in Bremen and Hanover, finally with Prof. H. Pallushek. In 1991 he was one of the youngest clarinetists in Germany to be assigned a principal orchestral chair, in the Hamburger Philharmoniker. Later he came to Cologne as principal clarinetist of the WDR Radio Orchestra.
Andy Miles is dedicated to chamber music and plays many solo performances as well. He is a sought-after teacher and plays concerts throughout the world.
Time and again he breaks musical boundaries and builds musical bridges. His "wild" past as a Saxophonist in Rockbands, as a Tinwhistlespieler in Folkbands, as a Clarinetist in various Jazzbands and, last not least as the Soloclarinetist of the Philharmonic State Orchestra Hamburg and Soloclarinetist of the WDR Radio Orchestra Cologne, allows him to move effortlessly through different music genres.
The press gave him the title: "Marco Polo of the clarinet" - a type of a new generation
