Biography

When no more than a few years of age, Yeganeh began exhibiting her musical talent by playing the piano and traditional Persian instruments Setar and Tombak. But her arduous yearning for music was finally appeased with the violin – the instrument that she has been playing throughout her career. She won the second place in a violin competition at the Youth Music Festival when she was only 11.

She got her bachelor’s degree in violin performance from the University of Tehran, and her master’s from the Art University of Tehran. Alongside her life partner, Arash Hazhirazad who is a pianist, she has performed at many a concert hall in Tehran and across the nation. Together, they formed the “Lyra Duet” and released two albums, Tehran-Mars and Eight Minutes & Twenty Seconds, and one single, Cold Winter.

 

As a session musician, Yeganeh feels blessed to have collaborated with a multitude of internationally recognized artists and conductors. She is a member of the all-female Shahrzad (Scheherazade) String Quartet, with whom she performed at the iconic international FeminEast festival in Sweden in 2017. An album, The Other Side, is also a fruit of her coöperation with the Shahrzad.
