Gramophone Award for Christian Tetzlaff

Christian Tetzlaff’s recording of the two Bartók Violin Concertos receives this year’s Gramophone Classical Music Award in the Concerto category. Music critic Rob Cowan places „his expertly recorded CD of the two concertos ahead of all rival versions“. On the disc, released by Finnish label Ondine, Christian Tetzlaff was accompanied by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Hannu Lintu. The winners of the category awards will be presented with their prizes on 13 September in London.
