The pianist Roman Rabinovich, whom I chatted to last year before his performance at the Lammermuir Festival (see my article), returns to the UK for performances at the Wigmore Hall and in Guernsey and Alderney, as well as making his debut with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Rabinovich was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, raised in Israel. and is now based in the USA. He combines playing the piano with a talent for the visual arts, and his Haydn series at last year's Lammermuir Festival included his own drawings too.

Rabinovich starts off his latest visit performing Haydn and Chopin at Hatchlands Park in Surrey on 4 October, home of the Cobbe Collection, the world’s largest array of keyboard instruments associated with famous composers. Then he is off to Guernsey and Alderney (11 & 12 October), and then he returns to the Wigmore Hall on 15 October performing Haydn, Chopin and Rachmaninov alongside one of his own pieces. Rabinovich is back at the Wigmore Hall on 30 December, accompanying violinist Lisa Ferschtman.

In Scotland, Rabinovich will be performing Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, conductor Sir Roger Norrington.

Full details from the events page of Rabinovich's website.
