Romanovsky Alexander


Alexander Romanovsky received education at the Kharkov Special Secondary Music Boarding School with Prof. Garry Gelfgat, the International Pianistic Academy «Incontri col Maestro» of Imola (Italy) and the Royal Academy of Music in London (with Prof. Dmitri Alekseev).

He was awarded the Grand Prix at Vladimir Krainev International Competition for Young Pianists (Ukraine, 1996), he won the 1st prizes at the Busoni International Piano Competition and International Piano Concerto Competition «Citta di Cantu» (Italy). Alexander was awarded the 4th prize at the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition in 2011 and became the first winner of the special Vladimir Krainev award.

Nowadays, Alexander Romanovsky tours in Europe and America, gives recitals and performs with symphony orchestras, such as the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra under the guidance of Valery Gergiev, Russian National Orchestra the guidance of Mikhail Pletnev, Big Symphonic Orchestra named after Tchaikovsky with Vladimir Fedoseyev (Russia), London Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, Halle Orchestra (the United Kingdom), Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra (Germany), New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Chicago Symphonic Orchestra (the USA) and others.

Alexander has released four albums of records with the works of A.Glazunov, L. Beethoven, R. Schumann, J.Brahms and S.Rachmaninoff.

Described by Carlo Maria Giulini as ‘extraordinarily gifted’, Alexander Romanovsky is a riveting, individual and subtle performer with an utterly engaging voice.
I was particularly taken with the wonderfully sweet and sensitively nuanced playing of violinist Rachel Barton-Pine, the nobility and warmth of Wen-Sinn Yang's cello and above all the extraordinarily rich sound from pianist Alexander Romanovsky.
