Praised by the New York Times for his “uncommon sensitivity and feeling,” the eloquent pianist Roman Rabinovich was the winner of the 12th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in 2008. He made his Israel Philharmonic debut under Zubin Mehta at the age of 10, and was among the first of three young pianists to be championed by Sir András Schiff for his “Building Bridges” series.

Roman has performed throughout Europe and the US, in venues such as London’s Wigmore Hall, the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, Cité de la Musique in Paris, and Washington, DC’s Kennedy Center. Roman is also a composer and visual artist with a repertoire spanning six centuries, from Byrd to Boulez and beyond.

He has won particular critical acclaim for interpretations of the music of Haydn. The first two volumes of his complete Haydn cycle have been released to critical acclaim on First Hand Records, with BBC Music Magazine noting that “the elegance and liveliness of Rabinovich’s keyboard style are, indeed, a joy to listen to.”
