Roman Rabinovich

Twenty-five year old Israeli pianist Roman Rabinovich was praised for the “vivacity and virtuosity” and “the impeccable clarity of execution” of his performances throughout Europe and the United States in venues such as Leipzig’s Gewandhaus, London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s Zankel Hall and Metropolitan Museum, as well as the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory, Salle Cortot in Paris, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

At age 10, he made his Israel Philharmonic debut under the baton of Zubin Mehta. Since then, he has performed with many other Israeli orchestras, the Buffalo Philharmonic, Dohnanyi Orchestra, Ann Arbor Symphony, Delaware Symphony, among others.

Roman, “whose mature, self-assured playing belies his chronological age,” was the top prize winner and winner of four additional prizes at the 12th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition, and first prizes at the Animato Piano Competition in Paris, as well as the “Vendome Virtuosi” and “Salon di Virtuoso” awards.

Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Roman immigrated to Israel with his family in 1994, where he studied with Arie Vardi. He graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music as a student of Seymour Lipkin and received his Masters Degree from the Juilliard School where he studied with Robert McDonald. Roman often combines his concerts with exhibitions of his paintings. Past Yellow Barn Musician (2009)
