German Violinist Christian Tetzlaff is the latest artist to embark on a Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall, a position that enables him to curate a wide-ranging personal concert series.  The first of his six-concert season at Carnegie is a program with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.

Tetzlaff stopped by WQXR the other day to chat with Jeff Spurgeon about the Perspectives series, about the modern violin he favors over those of the Stradivari era, and about the power and purpose of classical music in a pop-music world.
