The Lee University School of Music will welcome pianist Roman Rabinovich to continue the 2021-2022 Performing Arts Series. The show will take place Monday at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall on Lee’s campus.
The concert will feature excerpts from Jean-Philippe Rameau’s “Suite in G Minor”, three impromptus by Franz Schubert, George Walker’s “Sonata No. 5” and Frédéric Chopin’s “Twelve Studies, Opus 10”.
Mr. Rabinovich has been described as “an artist of the highest caliber; a pianist with complete technical mastery, a prodigious memory and a very individual personality at the piano” by the Palm Beach Arts Paper and “a joy to listen to” by BBC Music Magazine. He has performed in venues across Europe and the United States and has participated in festivals such as Marlboro, Lucerne, Davos, Prague Spring, Klavier-Festival Ruhr and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and is a frequent guest at ChamberFest Cleveland .
Mr. Rabinovich is passionate about Franz Joseph Haydn and his piano music and has received critical acclaim for his explorations of the composer. At the 2018 Bath Festival he presented 42 sonatas in a series of 10 recitals. Previously, as artist-in-residence at the Lammermuir Festival in Scotland in 2016, he performed 25 Haydn sonatas in five days, and for two seasons he performed all Haydn sonatas in Tel Aviv.
In addition to performing concertos, solo recitals and chamber music, Mr. Rabinovich is a composer and visual artist. He is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and received his Masters in Music from the Juilliard School.
