Christian Tetzlaff, born in 1966 in Hamburg, has been one of the most admired violinists and exciting musicians on the classical music scene for many years.
His interpretation of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with Daniel Harding was described by classical and opera critic Tim Ashley as “the greatest performance of the work I’ve ever heard.”
Concerts with Christian Tetzlaff often become a memorable experience for critics and audience alike, as old familiar works via his talent suddenly appear in an entirely new light.
In addition, he frequently turns his attention to forgotten masterpieces like Joseph Joachim’s Violin Concerto, which he successfully championed, and attempts to establish important new works in the repertoire, such as the Violin Concerto by Jörg Widmann, which he premiered. He has an unusually extensive repertoire and gives approximately 100 concerts every year.
Christian Tetzlaff served as artist in residence with the Berlin Philharmonic, participated in a concert series over several seasons with New York’s Metropolitan Opera Orchestra under James Levine, and appears regularly as a guest with ensembles such as the Vienna and New York Philharmonic Orchestras, the Concertgebouw Orchestra and London’s leading orchestras. He has worked with leading conductors like Andris Nelsons, Robin Ticciati and Vladimir Jurowski.
His participation in the concert tour of the NHK Symphony Orchestra Tokyo provides the audience in Hanoi with a unique opportunity to hear him play under the baton of Michiyoshi Inoue.
