Peter Zazofsky

 

Peter Zazofsky has performed as a solo violinist and chamber
musician throughout the US, Canada, and twenty-one countries in South American and Europe, including solo appearances with the Boston Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Brussels Symphony, Symphony of Buenos Aires, Montreal Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Toronto Symphony, Vienna Symphony, Berlin Philharmonic, Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the Philadelphia Orchestra.


He was raised in Boston where he studied with Joseph Silverstein, concertmaster of the Boston Symphony. Following studies at the Juilliard School with Dorothy Delay and Ivan Galamian, he attended the Curtis Institute, and spent five summers at the Marlboro Music Festival.


After graduating from the Curtis Institute in 1976, he toured several seasons with “Music from Marlboro.” He won the Grand Prize of the 1979 Montreal International Competition, Second Prize of the 1980 Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels, and was the winner of the 1985 Avery Fisher Career Grant.


In addition to concerts worldwide with the Muir Quartet, which he joined in 1987, he has been engaged to perform solo recitals in Paris, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Vienna, and Israel. Peter plays a violin made by Carlo Bergonzi in 1744.
