Beethoven: Works for Violin and Orchestra

Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61
Romances Nos. 1 & 2 for Violin and Orchestra

Christian Tetzlaff (violin)
Tonhalle Orchestra of Zurich, David Zinman
“This superb Beethoven disc from Christian Tetzlaff is a real winner. The main stumbling-block on so many rival recordings of this work is a sort of romantic reverence, a trend challenged by Zehetmair, Kremer and others – and now Tetzlaff.
For all its many moments of profound repose, Beethoven's Violin Concerto is a forthright, heroic piece, with boldly militaristic first-movement tutti and a rollicking finale which Tetzlaff invests with numerous added colours.
Following on the heals of Zehetmair, Kremer and Schneiderhan, Tetzlaff performs the violin version of the cadenza that Beethoven wrote for his piano transcription of the work, a playful excursion and a snug fit for his overall interpretation.
Tempi are brisk without hurrying, the slow movement has an unruffled serenity and a lively added cadenza in the finale helps accentuate the pervading sense of play. Excellent booklet- notes explain the work's genesis and the basic drift of Tetzlaff's approach and the two Romances that complete the programme are performed with the same chaste lyricism.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
“[Christian Tetzlaff is] one of the most brilliant and inquisitive artists of the new generation” New York Times
