MTT, SF Symphony team with all-world violinist Christian Tetzlaff

Known for his brilliantly incisive tone and intensely focused performance style, German violinist Christian Tetzlaff has become one of the world’s top interpreters of works for his instrument. Whether he’s traversing solo Bach works, exploring chamber music with his Tetzlaff Trio, or giving performances of the great violin concertos with orchestras around the world, his musical insights are always illuminating.
Later this month, audiences across the United States will hear him play Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 3 with the San Francisco Symphony, as the orchestra embarks on its final national tour with music director Michael Tilson Thomas. Performances of Mozart’s concerto are scheduled for tour stops in Seattle, Kansas City and Washington, D.C. (Tetzlaff will also play Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with MTT and the Symphony in Boston and Chicago.)
Bay Area audiences will get a tour preview in Davies Symphony Hall this week, as Tetzlaff makes a welcome return to San Francisco to join MTT and the orchestra in four performances. The Mozart concerto is the centerpiece of a program that also includes Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2, which MTT has conducted to great acclaim in recent seasons. Ravel’s “Le Tombeau de Couperin” launches what promises to be a program to remember.
Details: 8 p.m. March 14-16; 2 p.m. March 17, Davies Symphony Hall, San Francisco; $20-$165; 415-864-6000;
