The eloquent pianist Roman Rabinovich has been highly lauded by The New York Times, BBC Music Magazine, the San Francisco Classical Voice and others. He has performed throughout Europe and the United States in venues such as Wigmore Hall in London, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Centre in New York, the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory, the Cité de la Musique in Paris, and the Millennium Stage of Kennedy Center in Washington DC.
Rabinovich has earned critical praise for his explorations of the piano music of Haydn. At the 2018 Bath Festival, he presented a 10-recital 42-sonata series, earning praise in The Sunday Times. Prior to that, in 2016 as artist in Residence at the Lammermuir Festival in Scotland, he performed 25 Haydn sonatas in 5 days, and over two seasons, in 2016 and 2017, he performed all Haydn’s sonatas in Tel Aviv.
In the 2019-20 season, Rabinovich will appear three times in NYC; once at Rockefeller University with the Escher Quartet, (Brahms Quintet) and in 2 all-Haydn concerts at the Tisch Center for the Performing Arts. In addition to mixed repertoire recitals in several U.S. cities including Detroit, Naples, and Schenectady, Rabinovich will give several concerts with cellist Camille Thomas.
Last season (2018-19), Rabinovich made concerto appearances with the Israel Symphony Orchestra, the Seattle Symphony, Des Moines Symphony and the Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música. Recitals included a return to Wigmore Hall, London, as well as those at the Liszt Academy Festival, the Houston Society for the Performing Arts, in Washington, DC, and at the Philip Lorenz Piano Series in Fresno.
Roman Rabinovich made his Israel Philharmonic debut under the baton of Zubin Mehta at age 10. He was a top prizewinner at the 12th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in 2008, while in 2015, he was selected by Sir András Schiff as one of three pianists for the inaugural “Building Bridges” series, created to highlight young pianists of unusual promise.
Roman Rabinovich graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music as a student of Seymour Lipkin, and earned his Master’s Degree at The Juilliard School where he studied with Robert McDonald.
