  • Summer 2020Summer 2020.  As the rest of the world, we have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Amidst the fears, hopes, and anxiety for the future, we remain grateful for the music in our daily life, as it becomes in turns, the shelter, the inspiration, and the unyielding structure of our lives. The summer of 2020 would have been the busiest for Joseph and I.  Between us, we have been engaged at a dozen music festivals around the world, including the inaugural unveiling of our new project, the Vivace Matera Music Festival in beautiful Matera, Italy.  Thanks to the vision and tireless energy of John Holloway, the executive director of Vivace, it transformed into Vivac-e Virtual Music Festival, to be conducted July 10-24, 2020.  We are beyond grateful to an amazing group of faculty that gathered together to teach and play at the festival, and can't wait to welcome the 50 plus piano students that have been selected up to participate in this exciting online event. Daily passes and auditor packages are still available to participate in the Vivac-e Festival.  Please visit our site for more info.  Andiamo![ read ]
  • Summer 2019 travelsThe summer of 2019 is shaping up to be the busiest one yet.  In addition to directing and hosting our Southeastern Piano Festival in Columbia SC, Joseph and I always greatly anticipate taking part in Texas State Int'l Piano Festival and Music Fest Perugia, where we'll perform Poulenc Double in Texas and Grieg and Chopin concerti in Perugia. We also will be making appearances at the Eastern Music Festival, performing duo piano.  In addition, I will teach at the following festivals this summer:  The Art of Piano (Cincinnati), Rebecca Penneys Piano Festival (Tampa, FL), Baltimore Int'l Piano Festival, Eastern Music Festival (NC), and Josef Gingold Chamber Music Festival (Miami).[ read ]

  • 2017 HighlightsLomazov/Rackers Piano Duo CD is released on MSR Classics! A labor of love, this disk of piano duo arrangement of Stravinsky Rite of Spring and Petrushka is available through Amazon, iTunes, and MSR among other outlets.  Audio Society of Atlanta says: "Performed with demon precision and complete dedication" 2016--17 season was busy.  In addition to a regular teaching and performing schedule, I had the honor of being invited as a visiting professor at the Eastman School of Music, substituting for my revered piano teacher and mentor, Ms. Natalya Antonova, who was on sabbatical in the fall. In the summer of 2017 Joe and I reunited with our great colleagues and friends at the Texas State International Piano Festival and Perugia Music Fest again.  One of the highlights of the summer was a trip to Brazil to be a part of the music festival at Vale Veneto, where I had the privilege of performing with Milton Masciadri, Emmanuel Baldini, Marcello Guerchfeld, Timothée Oudinot, Kate Hamilton, and Claudio Merlo.[ read ]
