Roman Rabinovich

Roman Rabinovich

Praised by The New York Times for his “uncommon sensitivity and feeling,” eloquent young pianist Roman Rabinovich is the winner of the 2008 Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition. Rabinovich has performed throughout the United States, Europe and Israel in such prestigious venues as Wigmore Hall in London, Leipzig’s Gewandhaus, Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, as well as the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory, Cité de la Musique in Paris and the Millennium Stage of the Kennedy Center in Washington DC.

In April 2009 as part of his prize at the Rubinstein Competition Rabinovich played a recital for the Mezzo channel in France, which was televised to 39 countries and to millions of viewers. In May 2008 Mr. Rabinovich replaced the eminent pianist Murray Perahia in a recital at the Mann Auditorium in Tel-Aviv.

Rabinovich has participated in such festivals as Marlboro, Lucerne, Davos, Menuhin Festival Gstaad, Prague Spring, and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. An avid chamber musician, he performed the complete Beethoven Sonatas for violin and piano with Liza Ferschtman.

Rabinovich, born in 1985 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, began his piano studies at the age of six with his mother, Mira. In 1994, he and his parents immigrated to Israel where he studied with Irena Vishnevitsky and later with professor Arie Vardi at the Rubin Academy of Music in Tel Aviv. He is a graduate of The Curtis Institute of Music as a student of Seymour Lipkin and obtained his Master’s Degree at the Juilliard School where he studied with Robert McDonald. Mr. Rabinovich also excels as a gifted artist. He often combines his concerts with exhibitions of his paintings.
