Gabi was one of those few musicians who can truly be called “beloved” — by his family and friends of course, but also by his students and his audiences.
As a performer he distinguished himself as a soloist and in the most important areas of chamber music: duo, trio and string quartet. His concert tours took him literally all over the world: throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Japan and Africa. He was one of the most prominent teachers in the United States.
Among his students have been his son Peter Rejto, myself, Stephen Balderston, Stephen Geber, Matt Haimowitz, Laurence Lesser, Sharon Robinson, Paul Katz, and Joanna de Keyser.
