Ondine is pleased to release its first chamber music recording from violinist Christian Tetzlaff, featuring his long time pianist Lars Vogt.
The selection of these sonatas for piano and violin by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart demonstrate the composer’s genius and show a wide range of emotions.
Christian Tetzlaff is considered as one of the very best violinists in the world. His recording of the violin concertos by Mendelssohn and Schumann, released on Ondine in 2011 (ODE 1195-2) was greeted with considerable acclaim.
Lars Vogt was appointed the first ever “Pianist in Residence” by the Berlin Philharmonic in 2003/04 and enjoys a high profile as a soloist and chamber musician.
2013 will see a Schumann Sonata release by Tetzlaff and Vogt on Ondine.

I. Molto allegro
“often bar-by-bar alternation between joy and sadness, beauty and regret, in mature Mozart is something to which Christam Tetzlaff and Lars Vogt are continuously alive...Tetzlaff finding a different articulation and colour for his almost every phrase...hardly 'period' performances, but these players find so much meaning in this music.”
“This disc brings toether two musicians absolutely at the top of their game and with long experience of working together, as the easy dialogue between them amply demonstrates...It's the hyper-reactivity between the two players that is a constant delight, as witness their subtle way of varying repeats...A delight from beginning to end. Would it be too much to hope that this might be the start of a series?”
“Tetzlaff and Vogt display strong character throughout yet they still evince warmth and sensitivity. The results are impeccable and dignified; teamwork and love for the music is at the heart of this. The sound quality is pleasingly clear with the piano set slightly further forward in the balance. No admirer of Mozart’s chamber music should hesitate with this Ondine release.”
