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.
Dubbed “a true polymath, in the Renaissance sense of the word” (Seen & Heard International, 2016), Rabinovich is also a composer and visual artist. In summer 2016 he embarked upon the Haydn Project, encompassing recitals of Haydn’s complete keyboard sonatas at Lammermuir and Bath Festivals in UK. Highlights of Rabinovich’s 2017-18 season will include appearances with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Sir Roger Norrington, Symphony in C, Szczecin Philharmonic, Leopoldinum Chamber Orchestra and Boca Raton Symphonia and recitals for the Washington Performing Arts Society and at Wigmore Hall.
Rabinovich, “whose mature, self-assured playing belies his chronological age” (San Fransisco Classical Voice) made his Israel Philharmonic debut under Zubin Mehta aged 10, having immigrated to Israel a year before from Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Rabinovich was the first of three young pianists to be championed by András Schiff, who selected him for his Building Bridges series. He has performed with all the major Israeli orchestras, Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, KBS Symphony, Prague Symphony, Buffalo Philharmonic and many others.
