Piano B
Palazzo Pfanner in Lucca, Italy houses a notable collection of museum art and artefacts. It was there, in the historical garden of the palace that the charity dinner and concert in celebration of the Piano B project by pianist Alexander Romanovsky took place with the support of PF/CV.

Piano B is a tour about seeing the world from a new perspective. It is an incentive not to give up. It is a bet and a social experiment, for only by implementing it will we witness the impact classical music can have today on people of different ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds.
In light of ongoing travel restrictions and social distancing measures, which prevents people from attending concerts as before, Alexander will seek out people and places that represent the diversity and the beauty of Italy. Travelling by car, and with his inseparable piano always at hand, he will perform across piazzas, between cities and hamlets, in the suburbs, in hospitals, and in community spaces.
Alexander Romanovsky
Born in 1984 in URSS (in Ukraine), a land with plenty of history and cultural traditions, Romanovsky begins to play the piano at the age of five. At thirteen, his passion takes him to Italy to follow his teacher, Leonid Margarius. Alexander owes a great deal to both Margarius and to Italy, since it is here that he will spend his formative years as an artist, beginning with his first place at the renowned Concorso Busoni in Bozen in 2001.
For 20 years, he has been invited to perform on some of the world’s most prestigious stages, such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Teatro La Scala in Milan, the London Royal Albert Hall, and Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. As he has worked to redefine the limits of classical music, his multifaceted personality has led him to extend his artistic practice beyond performance, for instance in the work he does at the Royal College of Music in London, and at the Conservatorio in Como.
