Roman Rabinovich made his Israel Philharmonic debut under Zubin Mehta aged 10, having immigrated to Israel a year before from Tashkent, Uzbekistan. He went on to earn his Masters degree at the Juilliard School. He was among the first of three young pianists to be championed by Sir András Schiff for his ‘Building Bridges’ series. Praised by The New York Times for his ‘uncommon sensitivity and feeling’, the eloquent pianist was the winner of the 12th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in 2008. His subsequent career has led him to perform throughout Europe and the USA in venues as Leipzig’s Gewandhaus, Wigmore Hall de Londres, the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory, Cité de la Musique in Paris and Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, with orchestras including Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Seattle Symphony or Orchestre de Chambre de Paris and all the major Israeli orchestras.
