Tetzlaff Quartet

HAYDN String Quartet in G minor, Op. 20, No. 3
BERG String Quartet, Op. 3
BRAHMS String Quartet in A minor, Op. 51, No. 2

The outstanding Tetzlaff Quartet, praised for lyrical, detailed readings of a wide range of repertoire, visits from its home base of Germany for a program of masterpieces by Haydn, Webern, and Brahms.

In this rare US visit, the quartet performs Haydn’s witty, surprising G minor quartet from Op. 20, Brahms’ turbulent and dramatic A minor quartet from Op. 51, and Berg’s vigorous and richly expressive first string quartet.

The Tetzlaff, which returns after a gripping recital of late Beethoven quartets for Cal Performances at Home last fall, released a recording of those works late last year, to rave reviews: “Most impressive is the Quartet’s exhaustive commitment to these works’ quirkiness and heterogeneity…the ensemble approaches these masterpieces with an arresting rawness—a willingness to color outside the lines—yielding vividly multidimensional readings that demand an immediate second listen” (The Classical Post).
