With this recording, Ondine releases the first chamber music album with violinist Christian Tetzlaff, featuring his long time musical partner pianist Lars Vogt.
The selection of these sonatas for piano and violin by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart demonstrate distinctly the composer’s ingeniousness and show a wide range and strong ambiguity of emotions. Mozart brought the genre to its first summit with a set of three sonatas, two of which are included in this release, B-flat major, K. 454 and in A major, K. 526.
The third sonata in this recording, G Major, K. 379 belongs to an earlier set, which at the time excited a local critic: "These sonatas are unique in their kind. Rich in new ideas and traces of their author’s great musical genius. Very brilliant, and suited to the instrument. At the same time, the violin accompaniment is so ingeniously combined with the clavier part that both instruments are constantly kept in equal prominence, so that these sonatas call for as skilled a violinist as a clavier player."
Christian Tetzlaff has for years been considered to belong internationally to the very top of violinists, he also constantly has a most extensive performing schedule. Musical America named him "Instrumentalist of the Year" in 2005. His recording of the violin concertos by Mendelssohn and Schumann, released on Ondine in 2011 (ODE 1195-2), received the "Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik".
Lars Vogt was appointed the first ever "Pianist in Residence" by the Berlin Philharmonic in 2003/04 and enjoys a high profile as a soloist and chamber musician.

 "...Tetzlaff and Vogt display strong character throughout yet they still evince warmth and sensitivity. The results are impeccable and dignified; teamwork and love for the music is at the heart of this. The sound quality is pleasingly clear with the piano set slightly further forward in the balance. No admirer of Mozart’s chamber music should hesitate with this Ondine release."
