 Update me on new releases by Tetzlaff

Christian Tetzlaff (b1966)

Having displayed early talent on both the violin and piano, Christian Tetzlaff eventually chose the violin as his first study, making his debut with the Beethoven Concerto and later studying at the Musikhochschule Lübeck with Uwe-Martin Haiberg and the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music with Walter Levine. He began to develop an international reputation by the late 1980s, particularly with the Schoenberg Violin Concerto; appearances in Paris, Cologne, London and other major cities helped to define his position and his New York City recital debut in 1993 (a Bach, Ysaÿe, and Bartók programme) was highly praised by The New York Times. Tetzlaff now has more than thirty recordings in his discography, which includes later-twentieth-century music such as the Ligeti Concerto and the Ronnefeld selected here. He gave the premiere of Johannes Harneit’s Violin Concerto in 2000 and has worked with a number of notable musicians including Yo-Yo Ma, Christoph Eschenbach, Sabine Meyer, Heinrich Schiff and his sister, the cellist Tanja Tetzlaff.

Tetzlaff, who used to play the ‘ex-Cox Rothschild’ Stradivarius, now plays on a modern instrument by Peter Greiner which he prefers for its dark, rich tones comparable to those of top-pedigree antique violins.
