Violinist Peter Zazofsky enjoys a richly varied career that includes performances with many of the great orchestras in America and Europe, recitals in major music centres, and recordings and tours as first violinist of the Muir String Quartet.
A native of Boston, he studied with Joseph Silverstein and Dorothy Delay, before entering the Curtis Institute, where he studied with Ivan Galamian and Jaime Laredo. Graduating in 1976, Zazofsky went on to win top prizes in several international violin contests, including the 1979 Montreal Competition and 1980 Queen Elisabeth in Brussels. Since then he has performed repeatedly with the Boston Symphony, the Berlin Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony, who also featured him on tour in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Long committed to teaching, Zazofsky holds the position of Professor of Violin and Chamber Music at Boston University.
