Peter Zazofsky, violinist,has performed in twenty-three countries on five continents. He has appeared as soloist with the Boston Symphony, (at Symphony Hall and at Tanglewood), the Berlin Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony, which featured him on tour in Hong Kong and Taiwan. He has

Further appearances, with the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Vienna Symphony, and the orchestras of Baltimore, Minnesota, Brussels, Warsaw, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Sao Paulo, Seoul (KBS), Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal brought acclaim for his distinctive interpretations of classical, romantic and early twentieth century concerti. Two such live performances, the Dvorak Concerto with Klaus Tennstedt and the Berlin Philharmonic, and the Bartok 2nd Concerto with Georges Octors and the Brussels National Orchestra, have been released on the Testament and Deutsche Gramophone labels.   

Born and raised in Boston, Peter Zazofsky studied violin with Joseph Silverstein before attending the Juilliard Pre-College under Dorothy Delay and Ivan Galamian. He then studied at the Curtis Institute, with Galamian, Jaime Laredo and Arnold Steinhardt, and the Marlboro Music Festival, under Rudolf Serkin, Felix Galimir and Sandor Vegh. In 1979, he won the Grand Prize of the Montreal International Competition, then the Second Prize of the 1980 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. He also received the 1985 Avery Fisher Career Grant.   

In addition to standard repertoire, Peter Zazofsky is an advocate for late 20th and early 21st Century compositions. He has premiered works written for him by composers in Holland, Belgium and Denmark, and recorded American concertos for the MMC label. Another premiere, Joan Guinjoan’s Concerto with the Liege Orchestra in Madrid, is now available on the Columna Musica label.
