The young American pianist, Reed Tetzloff, has distinguished himself as one of the brightest stars of a new generation of musicians.
He enthralls audiences with his “magical tone” (The Cincinnati Enquirer) and “ebullient” virtuosity (Grammophone Magazine).
He has showcased his unique gifts as a recitalist and concerto soloist on three continents and made his Lincoln Center debut with the Mannes Orchestra at Alice Tully Hall, and his New York solo recital debut at Merkin Hall, both in 2012. He has also performed concerti with the Cincinnati Symphony, the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra, the Mississippi Valley Orchestra, the Minnesota Orchestra, the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra, the Queens Symphony, the Rochester Philharmonic, the Tbilisi Symphony, and the Wayzata Symphony. In Europe, he has performed at the Small and Great Halls of the Moscow Conservatory, the Grand Hall of the Tbilisi State Conservatoire, the Flagey Concert Hall in Brussels, and the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth, among others.
At the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition in 2015, Reed Tetzloff’s career was given a major boost after being named one of twelve semi-finalists. His performances were widely acclaimed in Russian media, which dubbed him “the lyric hero of the competition”, and noted by music connoisseurs across the globe. He has won prizes from other major international competitions: Beijing International Music Festival and Academy, Cincinnati World Piano Competition, Cleveland International Piano Competition, Schimmel, and the Tbilisi International Piano Competition.
Born and raised in Minneapolis, MN, he previously studied with Dr. Paul Wirth. At Mannes College the New School for Music, where he earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in the studio of Pavlina Dokovska, he won the two largest awards available to pianists: the Concerto Competition and the Nadia Reisenberg Competition.
