VIOLINIST NADJA SALERNO-SONNENBERG HERE FEB. 21 FOR DIEHN CONCERT SERIES

Violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg will perform in a chamber recital with Apollo at 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 21, as part of the F. Ludwig Diehn Concert Series.

The program will include Mozart's "Duo for Violin and Viola in G Major" and Schumann's "Piano Quartet." She will also conduct a master class for selected students at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 20.

Both the concert and master class will be held in Chandler Recital Hall of the Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Center and are free and open to the public. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.

Salerno-Sonnenberg's powerful artistry places her among the great violinists of our time. Her exhilarating and distinctive performances are renowned, and her ability to convey the strength as well as the grace of each work has won her a loyal following among classical music audiences over the past 17 years.

She has performed extensively in the United States and abroad with such conductors as Muti, Levine, Masure, Mehta, Eschenbach, Davis (Sir Andrew), Sawallisch, Litton, Dutoit, Shostakovitch, Tilson Thomas, de Waart, Järvi, Slatkin, Schwarz, Hogwood, Macal and Nagano.

Joining Salerno-Sonnenberg for her Old Dominion performance will be Apollo, a group of musicians from the Virginia Symphony in Norfolk organized to explore a broad array of chamber music literature.

The Feb. 20 and 21 programs are part of the F. Ludwig Diehn Concert and Residency Series, funded by an endowment established at the Norfolk Foundation by the late F. Ludwig Diehn and his wife. For more information call 683-3020.
