Elaine Diehl Talks with Award-Winning Pianist Reed Tetzloff

“As remarkably developed as Tetzloff’s gift is, it suggests even greater things to come.” – Gramophone Magazine

“Richly communicative…a young American to watch.” – The Cincinnati Enquirer

Minneapolis born and New York based, Reed Tetzloff has been a top prizewinner of numerous international competitions. As a semi-finalist in the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition, one of the world’s most prestigious, his performances were widely acclaimed in the Russian media, where he was compared to Van Cliburn and dubbed “the lyric hero of the competition.”

In 2017, Reed released his first solo CD, Sounds of Transcendence.

He recently visited with WGUC’s Elaine Diehl.
