Born in Croatia, Dalia Lazar began studying piano at an early age. Her first piano teacher recognized her uncommon talent and pianistic ability, and at the age of sixteen she was admitted to Moscow's P.I. Tchaikovsky Conservatory. During her studies in Moscow, Ms. Lazar performed throughout Soviet Union. Immediately after her graduation at the Moscow Conservatory, Ms. Lazar decided to continue her career in New York and London where she
studied with Karl Urlich Schnabel and Maria Curcio.
As a finalist in New York Concert Artist Guild Competition, Ms Lazar made her New York debut at Rubenstein Hall, followed by her Carnegie Recital Hall debut later that year. Since then she has performed a broad repertoire as a soloist in concerts and recitals worldwide, including the United States, Russia, Venezuela, Israel, Switzerland, Croatia, Mexico and Romania. Her chamber music repertoire includes the works for violin and piano duo and piano trio, which she performed extensively with her late husband, violinist Lucian Lazar. Her recent CD includes works by Schumann and Chopin. Visit Ms. Lazar’s website at www.dalialazar.com
