Capable of making a violin’s strings sound mournful or joyous, Christian Tetzlaff is internationally recognized
for his abilities as a performer. He imbues his instrument with a kind of life that few violinists are truly capable of.
If you love classical music—and especially if you love the violin—than you can’t afford to pass up Christian
Christian Tetzlaff was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1966. Music was an unbreakable bond in his family (all his siblings
are professional musicians, and he began playing the piano and violin at age six). By the age of 14, Tetzlaff had made his
choice. There was no looking back—he was born to be a professional violinist, and attended prestigious musical schools
to do so.
Having performed with the orchestras of New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Boston, San Francisco, Philadelphia
and Toronto, Christian Tetzlaff is no stranger in America. But if you haven’t seen him yet, then his 2008-09 season
is one you can’t miss. Performing with a variety of orchestras from around the country, classical
tickets to his shows are well worth the expense.
