Classical Music Guide (Donald Isler)
“Everything he does comes across as natural, organic to the music, and unforced, especially his sense of pacing and his tone, which is always round and beautiful.”

REED TETZLOFF VERRAST‘Ge moet beslist naar Reed Tetzloff komen luisteren!’ Onze columnist Erik Vertriest,…

Gramophone Magazine (Patrick Rucker)
“Reed Tetzloff, the 25-year old Minneapolis native who makes his impressive solo recording debut here, has not only exhausted every implication of (the Griffes Sonata) but seems delighted to share his discoveries…ranks easily with the recordings of Garrick Ohlsson and Stephen Beus as the finest available…I found myself returning with relish to the Op 38 (Scriabin) Waltz, where Tetzloff perfectly captures an overripe fin de siècleinsouciance, poised just this side of trashiness…kaleidoscopic colors are exchanged for fervent rapture in (Franck’s Prelude, Choral, et Fugue) in a performance that…carries the day with its sincerity and sheer beauty of its musicality.  As remarkably developed as Tetzloff’s gift is, it suggests even greater things to come.”

MusicWeb International (Marc Rochester)
“With this debut disc he is throwing down a gauntlet all of his own, and one which sets him apart from the great mass of young pianists who, on paper, seem his equal…Tetzloff has thought long and hard about the music, has taken possession of it, and, with the kind of opulent technique we regard as pretty near obligatory in young pianists today, delivers a performance of immense individuality and conviction…one senses that Tetzloff is looking way beyond the minutiae of the music, and he delivers a performance as visionary and unified as anyone could reasonably expect.”

Audiophile Audition Magazine (Gary Lemco)
“Tetzloff imbues the eight minutes of exotic solipsism with an erotic, impulsive sense of nuance…Theatrically dramatic as it is manifestly erotic, (Scriabin’s) music invites Tetzloff to demonstrate his mastery of color effects to obvious advantage.”

Cleveland Classical (Mike Telin)
“Reed Tetzloff (24, United States) chose two contrasting works in b-flat minor. His sensitive performance of Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in b-flat (WTC I) was characterized by wonderful lines and rich tone. He began Chopin’s Sonata No. 2 in b-flat, Op. 35 with full-bodied tone and fluid lines. The Scherzo was grand with a lovely middle section, and the funeral march marvelous. Tetzloff’s confident playing of technical passages in the finale brought the work — and the evening — to a superb conclusion.”

Cleveland Classical (Mike Telin)
“American Reed Tetzloff was again impressive. During Frederic Rzewski’s “Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues” from North American Ballads, the pianist brilliantly delivered a well-paced, captivating performance. Following a neat and tidy Chopin Etude in F, Op. 10, No. 8 Tetzloff capped of his set with a remarkable delivery of Beethoven’s  Sonata No. 31 in A-flat, Op. 110. Throughout the work, the pianist captured the wonderment of the composer’s later compositions.”
