Christian Tetzlaff

“Christian Tetzlaff lets the music live, breathe and sing with a directness few can equal today. Sensational.”

Guardian (London)

German virtuoso Christian Tetzlaff joins the Festival Orchestra to perform Mozart’s buoyant First Violin Concerto, written when the composer was still a teenager. Louis Langrée conducts the program, which also includes Mozart’s “Prague” Symphony, a Haydn overture, and Schnittke’s contemporary mash-up of the two masters.

There is no late seating.

This performance is approximately one hour and 50 minutes with one intermission.
