Chamber Music Series presents:

Strauss, Tomkins, Zivian Trio
at the Gualala Arts Center
What these musicians share, in addition to their universally recognized
technical brilliance, is a passion for making the music come
alive. Individual stars in their own right, together they make musical
fireworks wherever they perform.
In 1998, violinist Axel Strauss became the first German artist ever
to win the Naumburg Violin Award, and in the seasons since, he
has been equally acclaimed for his virtuosity and his musical sensitivity.
The Salt Lake Tribune praised his well-rounded artistry by
saying, "Strauss quickly established that he is a virtuoso to be
reckoned with. But amid his technical acumen, there was a genuine
musician. His interpretive prowess was delightful."

with Gabor Rejto and received her bachelor of fine arts degree
from the California Institute of the Arts as a student of Ron Leonard.
