The DSO and Robin Ticciati have already released numerous highly acclaimed CD recordings, including one with long-time artistic partner Christian Tetzlaff. The latest recording on Ondine, featuring violin concertos by Beethoven and Sibelius, was selected as Recording of the Month by the renowned British Gramophone Magazine and also among the 50 most important Beethoven recordings of all time. The latest CD, which will also be released by Ondine on 2 September 2022, is once again dedicated to two outstanding masterpieces of violin literature: the violin concertos by Johannes Brahms and Alban Berg.
 
Since 1984, violinist Christian Tetzlaff has enjoyed an intensive friendship with the DSO and, for many years, with its principal conductor Robin Ticciati. Together they have given the Berlin and touring audiences numerous unforgettable artistic moments. Tetzlaff interpreted Brahms' virtuosic and challenging work together with Ticciati and the orchestra in the Berlin Philharmonie in March 2022 and was recorded live for this release. Berg's Violin Concerto, on the other hand, found its way onto the joint CD as early as 2021 in the studio of the Funkhaus in Nalepastrasse. In both cases, the sound engineer was Christoph Franke, who has received many awards for his high-quality recordings.
