Leif Ove Andsnes piano; Christian Tetzlaff violin @ Wigmore Hall

15 September 2021 @ 19:30 21:30

Collaborating with a regular pianist partner, the German violinist’s residency opens with a recital ranging from Dvořák’s late-Romanticism to the modernism of Bartók and Lutosławski. The former’s masterpiece was written for Jelly d’Arányi, and premièred by her and the composer in London in 1922. Of tonight’s performers’ recording of the piece, the BBC’s Andrew McGregor wrote: ‘As a duo they’re breathtaking, with Tetzlaff soaring sweetly over Bartók’s gritty piano part’.
