Top Ten Performances of 2023

The opening Concerto Night of the Miami International Piano Festival peaked with a bracing reading of Schumann’s Piano Concerto by Reed Tetzloff. Combining artistic intelligence, immaculate technique, and daredevil bravura, Tetzloff’s playing was idiosyncratic in the best sense of the term. Leading an excellent 31-piece ensemble, conductor Hobart Earle was a full partner in this revitalized iteration of a repertoire standard.

I am old enough to remember when a performance or recording of Charles Ives’s “Concord” Sonata was an event. While a new recording may not yet be commonplace, neither is it rare. The young American pianist Reed Tetzloff has a great deal of competition, and one pianist, Marc-André Hamelin, has even recorded it twice.
