Arianna & Eugenia Zukerman to join CS Duo


On Saturday, February 15, 2014 we have the enormous pleasure of welcoming a very special mother-daughter team: soprano Arianna and flutist Eugenia, Zukerman.


The program is dedicated to women's music and it promises to be a very special event indeed.


The Washington Post has acclaimed, "Arianna Zukerman possesses a remarkable voice that combines the range, warmth and facility of a Rossini mezzo with shimmering, round high notes and exquisite pianissimos that would make any soprano jealous."

Ms. Zukerman's extensive career includes performances with an impressive group of conductors including James Levine, Charles Dutoit, Leonard Slatkin, Lorin Maazel, Ivor Bolton, Constantine Orbelian, Julian Wachner, Jeffrey Thomas, Jane Glover, Lawrence Foster, Rossen Milanov, Marin Alsop, Pinchas Zukerman, Jose Luis Gomez, and Andrew Litton. She has worked with major orchestras worldwide, including the orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Minnesota, Dallas, Colorado, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh, and the Philadelphia Orchestra, Rochester Philharmonic and National Arts Centre Orchestra in North America, and with the English String Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic (UK), the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Gulbenkian Foundation Orchestra and the Moscow Chamber Orchestra abroad, to name a few. Among the opera companies with which she has performed are such esteemed organizations as New York City Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, Arizona Opera, The Chattanooga Opera, the Berkshire Opera Company, and the Castleton Festival. 


Eugenia Zukerman is a true Renaissance woman. While maintaining an international concert calendar with more than thirty performances annually, her multi-faceted career also includes distinguished work as an arts administrator, author, educator, internet entrepreneur, and journalist. 

In demand from New York to China as an orchestral soloist, chamber musician and recitalist, Eugenia Zukerman has been praised by The New York Times for her performances - "Her musicianship is consummate, her taste immaculate and her stage presence a sheer pleasure." She has enjoyed musical collaborations with Emmanuel Ax, Yo-Yo Ma, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, the Shanghai String Quartet and fellow flutists Jean- Pierre Rampal and James Galway.


So, join us for the March of the Women on February 15, 2014, part of the Tucson Desert Song Festival and for the rest of the exciting 2013-14 Season!
