Dr. Bottazzi has had an extraordinary career. She has played at Carnegie Hall 17 times and at the White House for President and Mrs. Bush and at the Vatican for Pope John Paul II. And, in 1968 she and her husband Bruno established the Bottazzi School of Music on Long Island, one of New York’s finest music schools. La Prensa in her native Buenos Aires called her “One of the world’s most exciting and dynamic pianists……one of the best of her generation.” The Boston Globe said, “The glory of her playing is her exceptionally full and beautiful tone.” The New York Times praised her “…big technique…rolling, sonorous tone…smooth fingerwork and extraverted temperament.”

Humanity and strength of character are equal to the music in her performances.

Yet, Dr. Bottazzi’s music career almost ended when she was 23 years old. Her mother had taught her until age 13 when she went to Paris to study with famed teachers Nadia Boulanger, Yves Nat, and especially Germaine Pinault. At 23, she had just returned from a world tour and was scheduled for a New York debut soon when her life changed dramatically. She was in a near fatal car accident in Belgium which left her with major head injuries. While she survived, after brain surgery she was told she’d never play the piano again. Her coordination was damaged and her memory unreliable. Yet, her mother had raised her with “Yes, I Can”. She returned to her native Argentina and recommitted to playing the piano again. After a 13 year recovery, she came to New York City and played her debut concert, and she hasn’t looked back since then. Overcoming tragedy has been as much a part of her life as teaching and playing music. In 1993 she recovered from breast cancer. Her extraordinary life story has been documented in USA Today, People Magazine, The NY Daily News, Readers Digest and countless other publications. She is also a Steinway Artist.
