Praised by The New York Times as “spellbinding,” violinist Alex Shiozaki is highly sought for his performances of works both traditional and contemporary. He recently premiered Sayo Kosugi’s Lilac Nova with the Juilliard Orchestra in Alice Tully Hall, NYC. Other highlights include summer residencies at Tanglewood as a New Fromm Player, a Japan tour with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and his 2011 Carnegie Hall debut, performing Mendelssohn’s Double Concerto with his wife and pianist Nana Shi. As concertmaster, he has led the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, New Juilliard Ensemble, and Harvard Bach Society Orchestra, among others. As a chamber musician, he has performed on stages from Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall to the Salle Cortot in Paris. Alex holds degrees from Harvard College and the Juilliard School, where he is currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree. His teachers include Joseph Lin, Ronald Copes, Lynn Chang, and Robin Sharp.
