First Prize winner of the 2001 Busoni Competition, Ukrainian pianist Alexander Romanovsky “is special, not just an extraordinary technician with a flair for color and fantasy, but also a sensitive musician and lucid interpreter… Mr. Romanovsky’s effortless ability to dispatch swirling streams of agitated passagework and myriad colorings comes through excitingly. Yet for all the fireworks there is wondrous clarity and grace in the playing” (The New York Times).
“His performance is a musical masterpiece in terms of dynamics, agogics and coloration, and atmosphere. Here, in the foreground is a poetic animation with passionate emotion” (ClavisOra).
“Romanovsky can produce the thunderous sound and sharp-edged, ringing bass that sends a tingle down the spine” (Gramophone)
