Sounds of Transcendence Review in Gramophone

Dear friends, I was recently very pleased to see this review of my new CD in Gramophone magazine, one of the world’s most important classical music publications.  What an honor!  Please enjoy, and remember, you can purchase the recording here: https://reedtetzloff.com/2017/10/solo-debut-cd/ From Patrick Rucker of Gramophone: Charles Tomlinson Griffes and the painter Mary Cassatt are the two most noteworthy Impressionists America produced. Yet Griffes’s now century-old masterpiece, the formidable Sonata, is rarely encountered in concert and represented by fewer than 20 recordings in current catalogues. Reed Tetzloff, the 25-year-old Minneapolis native who makes his impressive solo recording debut here, has not […]

Belgium 2017 Recap

Hello everyone! I recently returned from my second concert tour in beautiful Belgium, where I found myself playing nine concerts in the span of ten days (on average, 0.9 concerts per day, in case you were wondering how it all breaks down). In all seriousness, it was a marathon and an incredible experience. Traversing my set of repertoire over and over again in performance, day after day, gave a uniquely rewarding feeling of total immersion and oneness with the music, to go along with the fascination of witnessing how these pieces changed, revealed different aspects of themselves, every time I […]

Solo Debut CD

Read acclaim from Gramophone Magazine here:  https://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/reed-tetzloff-sounds-of-transcendence Charles Tomlinson Griffes and the painter Mary Cassatt are the two most noteworthy Impressionists America produced. Yet Griffes’s now century-old masterpiece, the formidable Sonata, is rarely encountered in concert and represented by fewer than 20 recordings in current catalogues. Reed Tetzloff, the 25-year-old Minneapolis native who makes his impressive solo recording debut here, has not only exhausted every implication of this enigmatic work but seems delighted to share his discoveries. Rhetorical aptness is front and centre in the sonata’s first movement, as Tetzloff negotiates Griffes’s luxuriously sensual harmonic syntax with a sure sense of […]

Spring update!

Dear friends, I hope this Spring season finds you well.  As we look forward to the summer and to new adventures, I wanted to update all of you on my upcoming musical activities.  I recently finished two concerts in Miami, FL, for the wonderful Chopin Foundation of the United States, with a program of Schumann and Chopin.  I have several interesting performances upcoming, and if you’re in any of these areas, I’d love to see you in the audience!

Debut Recording Announcement

Dear friends, I can now announce my debut recording project, “Sounds of Transcendence” – a program of radiant music by César Franck, Alexander Scriabin, and Charles Tomlinson Griffes.  The works I will be presenting cover a span of 35 years, from 1884 to 1919, and all make their own unique metaphysical explorations, from the devoutly Catholic rhetoric of Franck’s Prelude, Choral, et Fugue – a stunning drama of sin and salvation unveiled in peerless musical form  – to the hallucinatory, feverish world of Scriabin and his American counterpart, Griffes.  This project will kick off with a preparatory recital on Sunday, […]

Recap of Belgium Tour

Hello everyone! My tour in Belgium flew by so quickly, and I’m writing this on the plane back to New York. There were a total of six recitals, tirelessly organized and promoted by my good friend, Erik Vertriest, who must be even more exhausted than I am, after all the work he so generously did for me! So my thanks goes out to him most of all, but also to the other organizers – Servaas le Compte for my performance in Antwerp, Christina Peterges and the Flagey team, Chris Taerwe and Benedikte van Garsse of Quatre Mains, Steven van Garsse, […]
