Biography

Whether performing and creating video musicals like Chromatic Fantasy and Sweet Thunder, recently featured at the Park City Film Music Festival and directed by Lena Chen, head of programming at TRIO, guest lecturing at Juilliard, premiering concertos, playing Bach for an Anne Rice book-signing, or improvising with violinist Nigel Kennedy - this versatile violist of the 21st century, wins high acclaim:
The San Francisco Examiner - “...magisterial...”
American Record Guide “...breathtaking virtuosity...”
Village Voice “heart-touching sincerity...unabashedly romantic...soulful...”

Rozanna is much sought after, including having compositions featured in a video of Marianne Pearl at the Knitting Factory and in an exhibition at the United Nations this season, and a premiere of Judith Shatin’s at the University of Virginia. Her most recent incarnation, Sweet Thunder, merges classical and popular culture without boundaries, redefining the role of the virtuoso.

Rozanna’s music videos have been featured on the Classic Arts Showcase, the TRIO Network, Rhode Island IFF, and Columbus IFF, where it was also a prize-winner. Chromatic Fantasy was directed by Patrick Smith and produced by BJ Seaburn. Her premiere of a concerto by Tania Leon was described by the Chicago Sun Times as one of “vibrant intensity and breathtaking virtuosity,” while another critic called her a “downright sensational violist.” Her recent performance at the International Viola Congress was described as “ground breaking.”

Rozanna has performed extensively in recital, in orchestral engagements, and as a chamber music musician worldwide including the Da Capo Chamber Players, performances in Sweden, Israel, Canada, South Africa, Baltimore, Cleveland, Toronto, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York’s Weill Recital Hall. Along with a recent recording for Howard Shore Rozanna has recorded classical music for North Pacific, Mode and Albany Records.
