“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.
