About the Artist

Christian Tetzlaff, Violin  • Tanja Tetzlaff, Cello  •  Lars Vogt, Piano

In the crowded and entangled landscape of violin virtuosi, Christian Tetzlaff is simply one of a kind. Noted for his “anti-lyrical” sound and preference for wide dynamic range over soloistic bombast, he has achieved superstardom over the course of three decades in the public eye. Following a triumphant solo recital two seasons ago on our series, he returns this year with the Tetzlaff Trio, a rare configuration that includes pianist Lars Vogt and cellist (and sister) Tanja Tetzlaff. It will be the first piano trio on our stage in over ten years, and we are celebrating the occasion with a program of absolute treasures—works by Brahms, Schumann and Dvorák that anchor the 19th-century piano trio repertoire. This is not a collection of artists who tour through the states together more than once in a blue moon, so please be sure to put this one on your calendar.

Come early and hear some of the most talented high-school age a capella singers in our community when the Princeton Girlchoir Ensemble sings at 7pm.
