Chinese-American violinist Strauss Shi is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting multi-instrumental artists today representing music of the east and west. Praised by American conductor Carl St.Clair as “a deeply probing musician who plays with passionate commitment and virtuosity” and a “rising star” by the late Maestro Michael Morgan, Strauss made his major debut with the Utah Symphony under the baton of Vladimir Kulenovic at the age of seventeen and has since then concertized in the United States, Europe and Asia. Strauss is a graduate from The Juilliard School and USC Thornton School of Music, where his principal teachers were Catherine Cho, Midori, and Pamela Frank. With deep musical roots in his Chinese instrumental folk music on the erhu/gaohu and as a classically-trained violinist, Strauss is paving his way as a young ambassador and artist combining both genres on international stages and festivals.
