Christian Tetzlaff

“One of the most brilliant and inquisitive artists of the new generation”, said the New York Times of Christian Tetzlaff, one of today’s most highly demanded soloists on stages all over the world. As at home in the classical and romantic repertoire as in contemporary music, Christian Tetzlaff sets standards with his interpretations of the violin concertos of Beethoven, Brahms and Tchaikovsky as well as Berg, Schönberg, Shostakovich and Ligeti. He is particularly well-known for his incomparable performances of the Bach Solo Sonatas and Partitas. In 2005 he was chosen by Musical America as “Instrumentalist of the Year”. He frequently played recitals with Leif Ove Andsnes and Lars Vogt. As a soloist and chamber musician he has performed in all international musical centres, including amongst others New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Centre, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Vienna’s Konzerthaus and Musikverein, and in London, Paris, Berlin and Munich.
