Roman Rudnytsky is an American concert pianist of Ukrainian background whose performances take him around the world. A graduate of the famous Juilliard School in New York, he has now played in about 100 countries. He has played with many orchestras around the world and, in Britain, has played with three BBC orchestras and several others. In 1990, he made the British premiere performance with the Worthing Symphony of the then-newly-discovered Liszt Concerto No.3 in E Flat for piano and orchestra.
This recital is one of fourteen similar ones he is playing in Britain throughout February. Other concerts in 2017 will take place on such Pacific islands as Guam and Saipan, New Zealand, Alaska, Australia (20th tour there), and on five Cunard voyages next fall (with five church lunchtime recitals in-between).
Mr. Rudnytsky is also currently "Professor Emeritus" of Youngstown State University (Dana School of Music) in Youngstown, Ohio, USA, where he was on the piano faculty for many years.
