Tanja Tetzlaff was playing with her brother Christian and pianist Lars Vogt at the Royal Festival Hall with Beethovens Tripel Concerto under the baton of Parvo Järvi and the Philharmonia Orchestra on February 2nd – after that some online magazines published the following nice reviews:
“..the first movement in Sinfonia concertante style but in the central Largo Tanja Tetzlaff announced the tune with utmost gentility before Christian Tetzlaff and Lars Vogt expanded it in their different ways.” (Anthony Hodges, classicalsource.com)
“I was very impressed with the lyricism which the string players brought to the work and the close rapport between all three soloists. (…) The Philharmonia’s strings brought warmth and intimacy to the Largo second movement before Tanja Tetzlaff entered with a highly expressive, heartfelt melody. Vogt played the meandering piano figurations with enormous sensitivity while Christian Tetzlaff and his sister sustained the melodic line beautifully.” (Robert Beattie, seenandheard-international.com)
“Controlling the emotional register of this performance was cellist Tanja Tetzlaff. Assembled from a motley array of constituents, her performance reflected the Beethovenian course that runs the gamut of Classical to Romantic to presciently Modern and back to Romantic again.” (Sophia Lambton, bachtrack.com)
“The players make declarations, pose questions, give answers, thrust and parry, chase each other, proceed in lockstep; there are moments of tender lyricism and of furious aggression – I’ve never seen string players subject their instruments to such apparently extreme maltreatment – but the Tetzlaffs encompassed it all with wit and impeccable virtuosity. This was a heroic performance.”
