Christian Tetzlaff, Violin; Kirill Gerstein, Piano at Carnegie Hall

Saturday April 6, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Performers
Christian Tetzlaff, Violin
Kirill Gerstein, Piano

Program
JANÁČEK Violin Sonata
BRAHMS Violin Sonata No. 3 in D Minor
THOMAS ADÈS Suite from The Tempest (NY Premiere)
GYÖRGY KURTÁG Tre pezzi
BARTÓK Violin Sonata No. 2

Two of today’s most distinctive musical interpreters form a chamber-music dream duo. The program includes three major violin sonatas: Brahms’s third, Bartók’s second, and the sole surviving Janáček work of the form. Also included is György Kurtág’s Tre pezzi—a spacious work with careful interplay perfectly suited for the pair—and the New York premiere of a suite from Thomas Adès’s The Tempest. This new suite adds to Gerstein’s history as a champion of Adès’s, a collaboration that already includes “new music as technically exhilarating in its modern way as any disc of Chopin or Liszt” (Financial Times).
