Praised by The New York Times for his “uncommon sensitivity and feeling”, the eloquent young pianist Roman Rabinovich is the winner of the 12th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition. He has performed throughout Europe and the USA in such prestigious venues as Leipzig’s Gewandhaus, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory, Cité de la Musique in Paris and the Millennium Stage at Washington DC’s Kennedy Center.
Rabinovich, “whose mature, self-assured playing belies his chronological age” (San Fransisco Classical Voice) made his Israel Philharmonic debut under Zubin Mehta aged just 10, having immigrated to Israel a year before from Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Rabinovich’s parents are piano teachers and his earliest lessons were with them, before studying with Arie Vardi in Israel. He then attended the Curtis Institute of Music as a student of Seymour Lipkin and achieved his Masters Degree at the Juilliard School, where he was taught by Robert McDonald.
Rabinovich is releasing vol. 1 of the complete Haydn Piano Sonatas on First Hand Records in the fall of 2018. He recently recorded ballets by Ravel, Prokofiev and Stravinsky for the Orchid Classics label to critical acclaim.
