James Strauss (b. November 29, 1974 Recife, Pernambuco) is a Brazilian flautist and musicologist.
Strauss began taking violin lessons from his father when he was four years old, but switched to the flute a few years later. He graduated from the Paris Conservatory with Pierre-Yves Artaud, Maurice Pruvot, and Lazslo Hadadi. Concurrently he studied Flute with Jean-Pierre Rampal. His career as a flute soloist started in 1991 with his performance with the Festival Orchestra of the 23rd Music Festival in Campos do Jordão, conducted by Júlio Medaglia.In 1999, he moved to Finland, and began looking for Piotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky’s legendary “Flute Concerto”, of which Rampal had seen a page in the 1960s in the Soviet Union. He eventually found three pieces of the original composition (one in St. Petersburg, one in Finland, one in Klin) and reconstructed from them the Concertstück for Flute, TH 247, now catalogued as a posthumous work by Tchaikovsky. From 2017 to 2020 James Strauss publishes the albums Mozart Discoveries, Latin Connections, Venezuelan Elegy, produced by Danilo Alvarez.
