Josep Fuster 2017 Edition

Once upon a time there was a craftsman who had a dream: making clarinet products to open up new horizons for clarinetists.

Not far away, there was a great clarinetist and wonderful person who played in an orchestra and was also a clarinet professor always offering the best of himself.


They had known each other for a long time, but coincidences in life made them meet many years later and talk about dreams and projects, the final result being the creation of a new model of clarinet barrel, simply a master piece: the Josep Fuster 2017 Edition.

Here I leave you a few extracts of the extremely interesting interview I had with Josep Fuster at the Curso de Clarinete Villa de Canena in August 2016 which I think define him very well from the human point of view and also as a musician.

If you would like to know a little bit more about him I recommend you to visit his website and see all the videos of the interview at our YouTube channel


“Things need to be natural. We don’t have to feel forced to say things we don’t feel. It’s like music, when you listen to naturally played music, you enjoy it. Things have to be as they are”

 “I have dreams. They are my aim. I always have projects”

“You start having a connection with the clarinet. The more I knew about it, the more I liked it. It is part of my body. When I was small I was very shy and the clarinet has helped me to show my emotions and feelings”.

“I enjoy playing the clarinet. I study because I have a motivation: I know that when I play, I feel much better.”

 “Being a performer and a professor is the best thing that could have happened to me. I learn every day. And pedagogy is becoming one of my passions.”

 “I am always studying. One doesn’t need to always have the clarinet to study. You need to know how to study to maximize time.”

“My favourite food is paella.”

“Mi hobby are canaries. I love to watch these lovely small birds. They help me to disconnect.”

 “I would have loved to meet Mozart.”

“We need to talk to all sorts of people, because musicians tend to always talk to musicians and about music.”
