Hank Zauderer is a violinist and an artist. He regularly hosts an evening classical music program at NPR radio station KUSP in Santa Cruz, California. In the past he was a member of several symphony orchestras and chamber music groups. In particular, he loves the study of great composers and feels that music composition so often reflects the key events that took place in a composer's life.
Hank's taste includes the old Gregorian Chants and related religious works as well as music of the Baroque, Classical, and the Romantic period. Some of his favorites include Mahler, Edward Elgar, Leonard Bernstein, Igor Stravinsky, and Benjamin Britten.
