Review concert at Concertgebouw

Pierre-Jean Tribot writes: " Alexander Romanovsky's approach may seem classic, as a middle ground that tries to stay in the balance between a Russian dough and a demonstrative virtuosity. Everything here seems "classic" in the good sense of the term with a reading supported by mastery and reason. The dialogue with the orchestra is particularly admirable.."

"Alexander Romanovsky: the perfection of a concert" - Uradio

Federica Pisacane Writes: "Surprisingly, Romanovsky's performance kept me with my eyes glued to the stage. His Variations were an unbroken thread that echoed in the absolute silence of the audience. The management of the piano and pianissimo was masterful, as if his fingers were barely touching the keys.For the first time in three years of Micat in Vertice, I wished the concert would never end, so much so that I was surprised when Romanovsky lowered his hands and stood up to receive the applause. My prayers were answered by three encores, one more beautiful and magical than the other; I left the Rozzi with a big smile on my lips and the feeling of having attended the best concert in three years..."

"Alexander Romanovsky triumphs with a monographic recital dedicated to Chopin"

On the inaugural evening of the 2019/2020 season of the Turin Music Union: "Romanovsky is a race pianist: race is undoubtedly the impetus of virtuosity, which seems to float on the epidermal surface of the score but ultimately proves to be a punctual brush in the reconstruction of the Chopin fresco. From the coloring at times snooty of studies op.10 and op. 25 Romanovsky in fact draws colors, lyrical shades, chiaroscuro atmospheres and pronounced musical ideas: take for example the first study in C major, inspired by Paganini, where apparently the chant relies on the harmless left...

Romanovsky opens the Musica Insieme season

" With a monographic program dedicated to Fryderyk Chopin, the Ukrainian pianist Alexander Romanovsky will open the concert season 2019/20 of the Musica Insieme Foundation in Bologna at 8.30pm at the Manzoni Auditorium on October 14th. Romanovsky, a darling of the Bolognese public for several years now, has chosen an important integral such as that of the Chopinian Studies which he will combine with coeval pieces passages of the Polish composer: thus at Opera 10 he will accompany Nocturnes Op. 9, while at the studies of the Op. 25 will precede the Mazurkas of the Opera 24.

"Equipped with a formidable technique that allows him total control of this, almost unattainable, score" - L'Arena

Elena Biggi Parodi Writes: "His interpretation was appreciated even more for the depth, with a phrasing, a dynamic and agogic gradation that endowed every passage with meaning, so as not to make any note accessory. With a wonderful use of the pedal and the touch Romanovsky made a round and deep sound (with the relaxed weight of the body, not with the strength of the arm), giving us some of the most suggestive "pianissimo" ever heard, up to the opposite extreme of reach the power of an orchestra..."

Review consert in Milan with Filarmonica della Scala

Luisa Sclocchis Writes: "Pages of great difficulty in execution but also full of expressiveness and pathos, of that late-nineteenth-century transcendental virtuosity recognized as having a certain Lisztian inspiration. Romanovsky's reading is light, almost ethereal, impalpable. Very far from what in the collective imagination is associated with Rach 3. Not blood energy, not that expression of "redundant feeling" that made him relegated by the criticism of time to manifest a now corrupt romanticism, hymn to a sort of sentimental psychology. That music that "comes from the heart and turns to the heart" appears conveyed with an unexpectedly shy touch. The participatory, heartfelt and extremely passionate intensity of which she is a brings comes almost discreet, whispered... "

A MiTo Romanovsky e Filarmonica Scala

"Alexander Romanovsky looks younger than his 35 years. At least until he sits on the piano. At least until he sits on the plane. Then he enchants the public with energy and mastered skill, as at the Arcimboldi theater, where he performed with the Scala Philharmonic conducted by Myung-Whun Chung."

A.Romanovsky dedicates his tour in Japan to Yoko Ceschina

"Last weekend, my friend and a very special person, Yoko Nagae Ceschina, has gone. She was one of the greatest philanthropists of our time in true sense of this word, because she supported theaters and orchestras around the world and the only thing she was expecting in return was to hear good music. She had always been faithful to herself and went where her heart led her.
Full of gratitude I want to dedicate all my four concerts I am going to play in Japan, the country which gave birth to her, which she was proud of and loved so deeply."
