Two of todays most accomplished soloists with a typically wide-ranging, distinctively individual recital.
After more than two decades performing together, German violinist Christian Tetzlaff and Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes " both widely admired for their immaculate, intensely communicative playing " have a deeply felt, instinctive musical understanding.
For their captivating recital, Tetzlaff and Andsnes bring together the deceptive simplicity of Mozarts elegantly lyrical Violin Sonata in G K379, alongside the full-blooded rustic vigour of some of Sibeliuss seldom-heard country dances.
They close with two unforgettable violin sonatas: the gripping emotional concentration of Janeks, and the grandeur and seriousness of Shostakovichs, written amid the political tumult of 1968.
This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
