As a life long violinist Zahra now embarks on new venture discovering the expressive qualities of the viola. The unique understanding of the role and function of the viola, particularly in chamber music and especially in a string quartet, is something Zahra is keen to further explore. She has been drawn to the special timbre and sonority of the instrument, and is excited to add this extra dimension to her musical journey.
Zahra made her debut at the Concertgebouw with the Piatti Quartet in November 2022. She is a member of the recently formed London Piano Quartet with whom she has performed to critical acclaim. The ensemble will champion new commissions and historically and unjustly neglected works alongside breathing new life in some of the greatest works in the chamber music repertoire.
