Christian Tetzlaff and Leif Ove Andsnes

Live from Edinburgh's Queen's Hall, sonatas by Mozart, Janacek and Shostakovich featuring German violinist Christian Tetzlaff and Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes.

Live from the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh, Donald Macleod presents a musical pairing that has performed together for over twenty years. German violinist Christian Tetzlaff and Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes open their recital with Janacek's violin sonata written during great turmoil in 1914 followed by a selection of Sibelius' miniatures and Mozart's elegant Sonata No 27 (written in just one hour). They close with Shostakovich's sonata, written for his friend, the violin virtuoso David Oistrakh.
