Concert for the Louis K. Thaler Concert Violinist Series: Christian Tetzlaff, violin, with Kirill Gerstein, piano
Christian Tetzlaff is one of the most sought-after violinists and most exciting musicians on the classical music scene. Concerts with him often become an existential experience for the interpreter and audience alike, old familiar works suddenly appear in a completely new light. "Tetzlaff delves further and further into the music, spans the very great Dvořák arc and thrills in a brilliant finale with so much violinistic superpower that one would like to propose him, Dvořák too of course, as the title character for one of those Hollywood blockbusters." (Der Tagesspiegel)
From Bach to Adès, pianist Kirill Gerstein’s playing is distinguished by a ferocious technique and discerning intelligence, matched with an energetic, imaginative musical presence that places him at the top of the international profession, with solo and concerto engagements taking him from Europe to the United States, East Asia and Australia. Gerstein's heritage combines the traditions of Russian, American and Central European music-making with an insatiable curiosity. These qualities and the relationships that he has developed with orchestras, conductors, instrumentalists, singers and composers, have led him to explore a huge spectrum of repertoire both new and old. The Observer described his work as "t he kind of serious, intelligent and virtuosic music-making that keeps classical music alive."
