Notes & Reviews:

Roman Rabinovich fuses art and music on his debut recording of works inspired by Russian ballet. The disc features composer-arrangements for solo piano -- Stravinsky's Three Movements from Petrushka, Prokofiev's Ten Pieces from Romeo & Juliet, and Ravel's Daphnis and Chloe - alongside his original visual art sketches.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
This brilliant debut from Rabinovich is vivacious and imaginative. The Romeo and Juliet is deployed with a brilliance that does justice to the orchestration. The crisp, staccato rhythms in 'Scene: The Street Awakens' are sharply articulated. Rabinovich has a sharp, almost metronomic precision. 'Romeo and Juliet' is absolutely lovely and well-paced. The same energy can be heard in the other pieces. The sheer virtuosity of his treatment of Petrouchka is astounding. The second of the Two Movements from Daphnis and Chloe, in the vein of Tchaikovsky, is a wonderful addition to this program. Everything can be described as crystal ice. Even the lyrical parts sparkle.
