Roman Rabinovich, a child prodigy who debuted with the Israel Philharmonic at age 10 under Zubin Mehta, continues his rise as an international piano sensation. Opening with Mozart’s A-major Sonata, Rabinovich premieres New Yorker Michael Brown’s darkly alluring 2015 work Surfaces and concludes with Schumann’s playful “Carnival Scenes from Vienna.” Join the artist for coffee and conversation following the performance.

The enthusiasm of his joyful playing is infectious. There is plenty of dazzling passagework to savor.”
