Top German violinist in label switchmain
The latest talent to jump – or be pushed – off a major-label bandwaggon is Christian Tetzlaff.
He was with with EMI and before that with DG. Now he’s with the Finnish indy Ondine, the one that burnt its fingers with a Philadelphia Orchestra-Christoph Eschenbach deal just before the music director was given the push.
They should do better with Tetz. His first release is the Mendelssohn concerto, with the Frankfurt Radio orchestra, conductor Paavo Järvi.
