The innovative spirit of the Cambridge, MA, home of MIT and Harvard, resonates with the credo of Israeli pianist Anna Arazi. She has founded and been running several community and campus projects at Boston University, engaging Boston inhabitants and students in musical activities and discussions. Among others, she organized a Musical Marathon, joined by performers from Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, as well as from Brazil, China, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Israel, Korea, Russia and Spain to collect donations for the Boston Marathon bombing victims (Symphony Magazine, summer 2013). In April 2015, following her winning of the American Protégé International Competition of Romantic Music 2014, Ms. Arazi will make her Carnegie Hall debut. As a winner of the BU Concerto Competition last spring she made an acclaimed debut with the BU Symphony Orchestra. Ms. Arazi maintains a very active concert schedule, and frequently appears as a soloist and a chamber ensemble member, often playing contemporary music, but especially enamored with romantic and twentieth-century Soviet composers. One of her recent duo appearances with Piazzolla’s Fuga y Misterio was described by the Boston Musical Intelligencer (April 23 2013) as “a great fun” and “a theatrical flourish”. For the last two years she has been invited to perform and teach as a guest artist at the BU Tanglewood Institute. Ms. Arazi is currently finishing her doctorate at Boston University. She enthusiastically explores conducting from the piano for the standard romantic and modern piano concertos repertoire. In 2012 Ms. Arazi was granted a life-long membership in the Golden Key International Honour Society.
