The innovative spirit of the Cambridge area 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, Greece, Israel, Korea, Russia and Spain to collect donations for the Boston Marathon bombing victims (Symphony Magazine, summer 2013).
Being an active performer, Anna Arazi frequently appears as a soloist and a chamber ensemble member, often playing contemporary music, but especially enamored with romantic 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 year she has been invited to perform and teach as a Guest Artist at the BU Tanglewood Institute.
In addition to her entrepreneurial and concert activities, Ms. Arazi is a current doctoral student at Boston University, receiving the honorable Richmond scholarship. She enthusiastically explores special music education models in order to extract the coveted recipe for excellence. She also maintains a private studio, fruitfully working with a variety of students, ranging from 2.5 year old to college students and university professors. In 2012 Anna Arazi was granted a life-long membership in the Golden Key International Honour Society.
