Violinist Christian Tetzlaff and pianist-conductor Lars Vogt, both acclaimed German classical musicians, will appear on the first concert of the Fontana series at 7:30 pm Saturday, Oct 26 at the Joliffe Theatre, Epic Center, Kalamazoo. In a phone interview with Cara Lieurance, Tetzlaff touches on his concert schedule and the works on his program, which includes "uplifting" sonatas in A major by Beethoven and Franck, and the "despairing" Sonata Op 134 by Dmitri Shostakovich. Tetlzaff says, "Music has to be a mirror of what can happen in life." 

Fontana's artistic and executive director David Baldwin also joins Lieurance to talk about the Tetlzaff-Vogt recital and the upcoming season.
