AMHERST, Mass. – The Music at Amherst Series continues its 2008-2009 season with a performance by violinist Christian Tetzlaff on Friday, Nov. 14, at 8 p.m. in Buckley Recital Hall of the Arms Music Center at Amherst College.

Tetzlaff is internationally recognized as one of the most important violinists of his generation. His musical integrity, technical assurance and intelligent, compelling interpretations have set the standard by which violin performances are measured. In honor of his artistic achievements, Musical America named him “Instrumentalist of the Year” in 2005.

In demand as a soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors, Tetzlaff has performed with the orchestras of Chicago, Cleveland, Boston, Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Toronto, among many others, and with major European ensembles including the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony, Orchestre de Paris, Vienna Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic and Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam.

Tetzlaff’s program at Amherst includes a selection of unaccompanied Bach sonatas and partitas.

Individual tickets are limited and go on sale on Friday, Oct. 31. For more information, contact the Concert Office at concerts@amherst.edu or 413/542-2195, or visit the Music at Amherst Series Web site at www.amherst.edu/academiclife/departments/music/musicatamherst.
