THE SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY PRESENTS GREAT PERFORMERS
The season’s Bach focus concludes in the hands of violin virtuoso Christian Tetzlaff. Lauded as one of the instrument’s most expert technicians, Tetzlaff complements his San Francisco Symphony performance of Bartók’s Second Concerto with the complete Bach Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin. Still representing the pinnacle of violin mastery for more than two centuries after Bach’s death, the Sonatas and Partitas have found one of their finest ambassadors in Tetzlaff, who has made two superb recordings of the cycle and been praised for the “clarity and solidity… sharp articulation…[and] intensity of the emotional charge he draws from this music.” (The New York Times)
