Roberto Diaz

Like many performers Roberto Díaz was born to professional musicians, his mother a pianist and his father also a viola player who taught at the Chilean Conservatory. Díaz began lessons aged six in Chile before the family moved to Atlanta, Georgia when he was fourteen (his father joining the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra). At this time he switched from violin to viola, studying at the New England Conservatory and then the Curtis Institute of Music.

Díaz’s professional career began with the post of principal viola in the Minnesota Orchestra and continued with a stint of five years with the Boston Symphony and teaching at the Conservatory, before working for four years under Rostropovich with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington DC. He has spent time (also as principal viola) with the Philadelphia Orchestra, having taught at Rice University in Houston, Texas, the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, and the Curtis Institute in 2001, becoming its president five years later.
