Praised by critics as "a diva of the piano" (Salt Lake City Tribune ),"a mesmerizing risk taker" (Cleveland Plain Dealer ) and "simply spectacular" (International Music Foundation, Chicago), Ukrainian-American pianist Dr. Marina Lomazov has established herself as one of the most passionate and charismatic performers on the concert scene today. Following prizes in the Cleveland, William Kapell,Gina Bachauer and Hilton Head international piano competitions, she has performed throughout North and South America, England, France, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Russia, Japan and in most of the 50 United States. In 2009, Lomazov was named to the International Roster of Steinway Artists.
Recognized by The New York Times for her virtuosity and wit, Dr. Lomazov's recent seasons include solo debut concerts in New York (Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall), Chicago (Dame Myra Hess Concert Series), LosAngeles (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) and Boston (Steinart Hall). As orchestral soloist, she has performed with the Boston Pops Orchestra, Rochester Philharmonic (New York), South Carolina Philharmonic, Charleston Symphony (South Carolina), Missouri Chamber Orchestra, Ohio Chamber Orchestra, Graz Höchschulorchester (Austria), Bollington Festival Orchestra (England) and Chernigoff Symphony Orchestra (Ukraine).
She holds degrees from the Juilliard School and the Eastman School of Music, the latter granting her the highly coveted artist's certificate - an honor the institution had not bestowed upon a pianist for nearly two decades. Her principal teachers include Natalya Antonova, Barry Snyder and Jerome Lowenthal. She has recorded for Albany Records, Arizona University Recordings, CentaurRecords and Innova Recordings. In July 2009, Centaur released her recording of works by Rodion Shchedrin, hailed by American Record Guide for its "breathtaking virtuosity." She has been featured on the Bravo cable channel, and her performances are broadcast regularly on National Public Radio's "Performance Today," Chicago's "Live from WFMT," Boston's "Live from Fraser" (WGBH) and New York's "Young Artist Showcase" (WQXR), among others.
