ABOUT ROMAN RUDNYTSKY…
Roman Rudnytsky in an internationally active concert pianist of Ukrainian background whose frequent performances take him all over the world – to every continent and places in-between. He is in fact one of the most traveled of all concert pianists, having played in more countries than almost all others. As of 2014, he has performed in about 100 countries – more countries than most classical performers of any kind have played in.
In addition to performances in capital cities and important musical centers, he often plays in places away from the musical mainstream, bringing the world and pleasure of classical music to audiences which seldom experience this type of music in live performance. He has received much acclaim in the world’s press and many reinvitations.
Born in New York into a prominent Ukrainian musical family, he began the study of piano at age 4 and gave his first full recital at age 7. He is a graduate of the famous Juilliard School in New York and also did additional studies at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland and at masterclasses in Austria (the “Mozarteum”) and Italy.
Mr. Rudnytsky is a prizewinner in 10 piano competitions, including such prestigious ones as the International Leventritt Competition (New York) and International J.S. Bach Competition (Washington) and, in Italy, the “F.Busoni” and “A. Casagrande” International Piano Competitions.
In addition to his many recitals, Mr. Rudnytsky has also appeared as a soloist with many orchestras around the world. To date, he has played over 45 different works for piano and orchestra with them. A great honor indeed, he gave the British, Latin American and Australian premiere performances of the recently-discovered Liszt “Concerto No. 3 in E Flat” between 1990 and 1993.
He also conducts master classes and workshops for local piano students and teachers during the course of his travels. The settings for these range from universities to small, rural towns and villages.
Since 1984, he has played concerts and conducted master classes in more than 35 countries under the auspices of US Embassies—in a number of them: repeatedly.
Mr. Rudnytsky is now “Professor Emeritus” of Youngstown State University (Dana School of Music), where he was on the piano and music faculty snce 1972. He previously served on the piano faculties of the Indiana University School of Music (Bloomington, Indiana) and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory, in addition to being “Artist-in-Residence” at two Australian universities.
