 Known for his utterly engaging voice and his distinct and subtle playing, Alexander Romanovsky was praised by The New York Times as 'special, not just an
extraordinary technician
with a flair for color and fantasy, but also a
sensitive musician
and lucid interpreter'.
 Alexander Romanovsky's particular line in the Russian piano playing tradition, which stands out for its
fiery poetic imagination
and touching sincerity, comes from the musical genealogy of his professor Leonid Margarius. It can be traced down starting from Leonid Margarius' teacher Regina Horowitz to Anton Rubinstein and Franz Liszt through her late teacher Felix Blumenfeld, and on to Carl Czerny and Ludwig van Beethoven through the famous pedagogue Theodor Leschetizki and his pupil Wladimir Puchalski, with whom the Horowitzes studied at the Kiev Conservatory.
 Born in Ukraine, at the end of the Soviet era, Alexander moved his first steps in music at the art school in Kharkov and later moved with his family to Italy at the age of 13 to pursue the musical studies with Leonid Margarius at the Imola International Piano Academy. At 17, the first prize at the Busoni Competition in Italy marked the beginning of an intense concert life in Europe, later expanding to Asian countries and the Americas.
 Highlights of the recent and future seasons include Rachmaninov's n.3 with the Filarmonica della Scala under Myung-Whun Chung's baton, his debut at the Royal Albert Hall in London playing Beethoven's n.5 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Tchaikovsky's n.1 with the Philharmonic Orchestra of the
Teatro Colòn
in Buenos Aires, the complete Rachmaninov concerti with the Symphony Orchestra of Milan, the complete Beethoven concerti with the Pacific Symphony, recitals at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, at the Freiburg and Bern International Piano Series, at
Moscow Philhamonic Society
, at Brescia and Bergamo Festival, at the Istituzione Universitaria dei Concerti in Rome.
 In summer 2021, Romanovsky launched his
Piano B
- an outdoor recital tour, bringing live music of Chopin and Rachmaninoff to over 40 cities across Italy after the period of pandemic closures and limitations.
 Romanovsky regularly performs with major orchestras throughout Europe, Asia and The Americas. Orchestras he collaborates with include, amongst others, the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, Accademia di Santa Cecilia Orchestra, Filarmonica della Scala, NHK Symphony Orchestra Tokyo. He also collaborates with conductors of high stature such as Sir Antonio Pappano, Gianandrea Noseda, Myun Whun-Chung, James Conlon, Alan Gilbert, Vladimir Spivakov, Valery Gergiev, Mikhail Pletnev, Yury Simonov.
 The multiple recordings over years include the complete Rachmaninov concerti with the Russian National Philharmonic orchestra and Vladimir Spivakov (2020). Alexander Romanovsky also published various albums for DECCA and Warner with works of Beethoven, Schumann, Brahms, Chopin, Scriabin, Glazunov and Rachmaninov.
 In the recent years Alexander Romanovsky has been actively involved in the promotion of the younger generation musicians and mentoring, he is currently a piano professor at the Royal College of music in London and the Conservatory of Reggio Emilia in Italy.

(03) Piano B

Because music is for, and of, all people.
Music heals and comforts, unites and
brings things to life.
Because music gives, so that you all
can give.
40 city across Italy When:
Piano B was an unusual outdoor classical music concert tour during which Alexander Romanovsky played the piano on a mobile stage journeying through Italy. Upon opening, the stage unveiled a tiny world to all listeners, destroying interior and exterior barriers and planting a seed of — community rebirth.
The Maestro voyaged in a journey that brought him in all regions of Italy to bring classical music to both those who’ve been deprived of this pleasure in the years of the pandemic, as well as those who were yet to learn how the genre could enrich them.
Since the audience couldn’t move, it was Alexander himself who reached out and played in different venues, from the more comfortable to the more unfortunate. Touring by car, he played his piano in cities and towns, suburban neighbourhoods and hospitals.
