“Christian Tetzlaff and Lars Vogt convey a sense of wide-eyed discovery, ardent conviction and warm affection in Brahms’s violin sonatas that’s not only immensely satisfying but unexpectedly moving as well.” – Gramophone

Mozart wrote his Violin Concertos in 1775 while still living in his home town of Salzburg and in service to Prince-Archbishop Hieronymus Colloredo. Mozart had already toured internationally and found his parochial environment restricting, but as ever he rose above circumstances to create sublime and thrillingly unconventional masterpieces filled with wit and charm. The finely sustained melodic expression of each concerto’s slow centre provides the perfect foil for inventive sparkle in outer movements that include a cheeky reference to the opera Il re pastore in K. 216, and an exotic ‘Turkish’ moment in the finale of K. 219.

HÖGSTA BEYG I DN (5 av 5): "Den som besöker Salzburg kan lätt få samma flyktimpulser som den unge Mozart fick när man blickar upp mot det mäktiga biskopspalatset. En byggnad från vilken biskopens polischef kunde se exakt allt som hände i staden. När Henning Kraggerud och hans briljanta orkester nu tar sig an tre av Mozarts violinkonserter ger de denna tonårsmusik just den oro i steget som gör att den säger något mer än att bara slösa med sina geniala infall. Med härligt nytänkande får de Mozart att sjunga och dansa som såg vi honom skaka av sig all världens auktoritära tyngder. Och göra sig osynlig för dess dömande blickar. En befriande narraktighet, med plötsliga stråk av svärta, som även gjorde dessa konserter till Astrid Lindgrens favoritmusik."

Despite the limitations of life in his Salzburg birthplace – and the patronage of a new and somewhat unsympathetic Prince-Archbishop – opportunities nevertheless presented themselves to Mozart. Following a commission for Il re pastore in 1775, he wrote a sequence of violin concertos that reveal his own performer’s understanding of the instrument. The concertos are suffused with elegance, vivacity and wit. Mozart’s mastery of solo violin cantilena is matched by prodigious melodic invention and moments of exotic colour, such as the Turkish episode in the Rondeau finale of K. 219.

Image Wozzeck
Based on real events and playwright Georg Bu¨chner’s starkly vehement text, Alban Berg’s tragic opera Wozzeck is an epoch-making work, in stark contrast to the previous high romantic ideals of the genre, that led Schoenberg to exclaim “now that’s what I call an opera!” Immensely powerful and heartbreakingly moving as a drama, Wozzeck explores the victimisation, despair and madness of a central character who has no place in society, its deeply humane message and sublimely innovative score firmly establishing it as a 20th-century masterpiece.

"Så bliver efteråret ikke smukkere. Medmindre man tager endnu længere ind i Brahms' verden af smertelig, blid vemod og suverænt musikalsk satsarbejde ved at lytte til hans sonater for to instrumenter. Sammen med sin faste klaverpartner Lars Vogt spiller violinisten Christian Tetzlaff violinsonaterne med følsomheden helt uden på tøjet..."
Politiken Thomas Michelsen, oktober 2016

Award-winning violinist Christian Tetzlaff together with pianist Lars Vogt offer an exciting program of Violin Sonatas by Johannes Brahms (1833–1897). This new release continues a successful series of recordings of violin chamber works by the artist duo.
Johannes Brahms’ Violin Sonatas are among the greatest masterpieces in 19th century chamber music. Brahms wrote these sonatas between 1878 and 1888, at the height of his creative powers. With these powerful works Brahms brought the genre of violin sonatas into a new dimension. Included is also Scherzo movement from the F. A. E. Sonata which Brahms contributed to a composite sonata with Robert Schumann and Albert Dietrich in 1853.
