Christian Tetzlaff

Violinist Christian Tetzlaff is one of the outstanding artists of his generation. The 34 year old is a soloist with orchestras worldwide. But he doesn't play one of the fine old violins from the 1600's or 1700's, but rather a brand new one - made in 1999 in Germany by Peter Greiner. Tetzlaff talks to Liane and demonstrates his new instrument's sound by playing Bach. (10:00) (Learn more about Tetzlaff at
