Lively and emotional classical music concerts at the highest technical level characterizing the duo of Julia and Christian Zielinski. Perfectly tuned to each other, they create an intense, intimate concert atmosphere, which capture the audience immediately.

Several first and second prizes at international chamber music competitions in Italy, Spain, Liechtenstein and Germany confirm the outstanding quality of the duo.

Through to the motto „the guitar is an orchestra“ the two musicians cover the whole colour range of their instruments and play completely by heart.

The result is a communication and liveliness on stage as it is rarely found.

Invitations to numerous international music festivals and further concert tours to Italy, Lithuania and Poland finally established Julia and Christian Zielinski in the music world. Invited by the Goethe-Institute, they already concerted as cultural ambassadors in Brazil and Andalusia.

Julia and Christian Zielinski, both born in 1987, are scholarship holders of the highly skilled foundations ING DiBa and the DAAD. Furthermore, they regularly perform in charitable organizations for the Yehudi Menuhin Society "Live Music Now".

They successfully graduated with distinction from the universities in Stuttgart (teachers: prof. Johannes Monno and Kaltchev Guitar Duo), Frankfurt (prof. Michael Teuchert) and with prof. Olaf van Gonnissen in Hamburg, where they took a concert exam, the highest postgraduate degree in Germany.

They recorded their first CD in 2007 with premiere recordings of Beethoven and Pujol. In 2013 their second CD „Portrait“ was released by Karlklang and received great critical acclaim from the trade press. In 2016 they both released a Solo-CD: “Versus“ and “Solo“ to emphasize their individuality.
