Due to the imminent birth of his child, Christian Tetzlaff has had to cancel his upcoming U.S. tour and cannot appear for us as planned this Friday. However, we are very pleased to report that violinist Benjamin Beilman and pianist Andrew Tyson will instead present a recital of works by Mozart and Janacek.
Benjamin Beilman studied with Christian Tetzlaff at the Kronberg Academy, and with Pamela Frank and Ida Kavafian here at the Curtis Institute. Last season Mr. Beilman received rave reviews for his performances of Jennifer Higdon’s Violin Concerto with the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Sibelius Concerto with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Alice Tully Hall. He has also performed also with the San Francisco Symphony, L.A. Chamber Orchestra, Detroit Symphony, London Philharmonic, Frankfurt Radio Symphony and many other leading orchestras. He has performed in recital at Carnegie Hall, the Gardner Museum, the Berlin Philharmonie and other venues in Europe, Japan and China. Mr. Beilman has won a highly coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, and a London Music Masters Award, and he was the First Prize winner of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and the Montreal International Musical Competition. He also participated at the Marlboro Music Festival and was invited to return for several seasons.
Program length: 1 hour and 45 minutes
