Tanja Tetzlaff - new album with Gunilla Süssmann

09.02.2018

Rautavaara – Works for Cello and Piano is the name of the latest album from cellist Tanja Tetzlaff and her long-standing musical partner, pianist Gunilla Süssmann.
The recording includes works by Finish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara (1928-2016) who would have turned 90 this year.
Summarising their enthusiasm for Rautavaara’s music, the duo said: “His music struck us in an almost brutal way. We were both enormously attracted to its mysterious melancholy and its sustained and relentless pain and anger, combined with a feather-light beauty and tender sensuality. It felt like a vocation to perform this music.”
