The  Strad June 2020 Issue


The musicians of the Tetzlaff Quartet discuss balancing chamber playing with busy individual careers – and recording their first Beethoven album after 25 years together. We publish English translations of letters by violinist Pablo Sarasate for the first time, and top soloists discuss working with conductors. There is also an article on bows from the courts of Napoleons I and III, and we attempt to solve an Amati cello mystery. Plus, cellist Steven Isserlis’s Sentimental Work and a Postcard from the Winter International Arts Festival in Sochi.
