Tetzlaff plays MacRae
26th August 2003
“Close your eyes, and the violin duo of Christian Tetzlaff and Antje Weithaas sounded like six. That’s largely due to the treasure trove of repertoire for a violin duet that lies hidden, but which this big sounding duo has had the sense to dig out.
We even had an unscheduled world premiere. As an encore, the duo produced Stuart MacRae’s Little Sonata for Two Violins requested especially for the occasion, with the proviso that the Scots composer made it short and faxed it them as quickly possible. MacRae delivered the goods – a super concentrate of the tuneful, richly coloured style he revealed in his recent Violin Concerto. Three movements crammed into two minutes – the icing on the cake.”
