Complete description

In this new recording the prestigious Tetzlaff Quartett (Christian Tetzlaff, Elisabeth Kufferath, Hanna Weinmeister and Tanja Tetzlaff) present a programme of String Quartets by Franz Schubert and Joseph Haydn in exemplary performances.

 

Praised by The New York Times for its “dramatic, energetic playing of clean intensity”, the Tetzlaff Quartett is one of today’s leading string quartets. Alongside their successful individual careers, Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff, Hanna Weinmeister and Elisabeth Kufferath have met since 1994 to perform several times each season in concerts that regularly receive great critical acclaim. The 2016/17 season sees the quartet perform in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Leipzig, Aachen, Lörrach, Amsterdam, Bern, Gent and Wimbledon as well as at the Festival Heidelberger Frühling. Other recent highlights include performances at Kölner Philharmonie, Konzerthaus Berlin and Paris’ Auditorium du Louvre, as well as a North America tour with concerts at Carnegie Hall, in San Francisco and Vancouver.

 

Franz Schubert’s (1797–1828) String Quartet No. 15 in G major, D. 887 was completed by the composer in 1826. It is the last work in the impressive series of String Quartets that Schubert wrote during his lifetime. In this Quartet, nearly symphonic in its epic scale, Schubert was touching new musical landscapes after the success of his ‘Rosamunde’ and ‘Death and the Maiden’ Quartets.

 

The String Quartet in G minor, Op. 20 No. 3 was written by Joseph Haydn (1732–1809), also known as ‘the Father of String Quartet’, in 1772 when he was at the height of his creative powers. In this revolutionary work with a hidden tension under its surface Haydn was exploring the limits of the genre.
