  • 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 ]
  • Fall 2018 UpdateAs of Fall 2018, Marina Lomazov has joined the piano faculty at the Eastman School of Music, as Professor of Piano. Together with Joseph Rackers, Marina will continue to serve as co-Artistic Director of the Southeastern Piano Festival, and as a Guest Artist Faculty at the University of South Carolina.[ 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 ]
  • 2016 Summer UpdateThe June week of the 2016 Southeastern Piano Festival featured wonderful concerts from Sergei Babayan, Ann Schein, Eric Lu, and great performances from our twenty rising stars, the participants of the festival.  The rest of the summer was filled with travel, concerts, teaching and adjudicating.  The Lomazov/Rackers piano duo was invited to perform a rarely heard work for duo piano by Anton Rubinstein at the American Liszt Society Festival in Los Angeles in late May.  In June, Joe and I were privileged to be invited once again to join the faculty of the Texas State International Piano Festival, directed by Jason Kwak, and featuring guest faculty Washington Garcia, Boris Slutsky, Julian Martin, Enrico Elisi, Anton Nel, and Carol Leone.  Two trips to Indiana, in June and July, took us to adjudicate for the Carmel Klavier international competition for pianists ages 5-18 and to perform and teach at the Indiana University Summer Piano Academy, directed by Karen Taylor and David Cartledge. Music Fest Perugia is a summer destination we always look forward to each year.  Directed by Ilana Vered and Sasha Starcevich, and featuring outstanding faculty that includes Jerome Lowenthal, Ursula Oppens, John Perry, John O'Conor and many others, this festival offers a unique opportunity for all participants of the festival to perform with orchestra.  Filled with music from morning to night, it is a glorious way to spend several weeks in one of the most beautiful locales in Europe.  There, I  performed  Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no. 2 with the Alicante Symphony Orchestra followed by three performances of this work in the U.S. with the Brevard Philharmonic, Aiken Philharmonic, and University of South Carolina Symphony Orchestra.[ read ]
