dahlia lazar125th sq logoAward-winning local pianist, Dalia Lazar, will delight the audience in this free concert, open to everyone. The concert is made possible by the generosity of Dalia Lazar.
To help celebrate the Town of Fairfield’s 375th Anniversary, it is one of Pequot Library's gifts to the community during their own year-long 125th anniversary celebration of Pequot Library.
Program includes works by Beethoven, Schumann, and Rachmaninov.
Born in Croatia, Dalia Lazar began studying piano at an early age. 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.
Dalia Lazar’s playing has been well received by critics, who have characterized her performance as “such noble playing,” (Yediot Achronot, Tel Aviv),  “un sentimento profundo” (Panorama, Venezuela), “virtuosismo y impecable fraseo” (El Nacional, Venezuela), “that rare combination of charisma, personality and terrific pianistic facility” (pianist Tzimon Barto), and “ inspiring display of musical excellence”  (Daily Republic).
