Acclaimed by the Moscow News as “a forceful, mature personality with a phenomenal technique and playing of emotional depth,” Alex Ruvinstein began his music studies at the age of five. He received his Bachelor’s degree from the Uman State College of Music, and shortly thereafter received his Master’s at the Gnesin Academy in Moscow. After receiving his Doctorate with Professor Naum Starkmann at the Maimonides State Academy in Russia, Mr. Ruvinstein worked as Professor of Piano and an accompanist for cellists and singers at this institution.

From 1995 to 2006, Mr. Ruvinstein played piano four hands with Olga Gurevich. The duo won the XXVIII International Competition in Salerno, Italy, and took the top prize in their division at the Ibla International Piano Competition. Mr. Ruvinstein has taken part in many festivals and concert series throughout Europe, has appeared on Russian National Television, and has performed extensively as a soloist, an accompanist, and a chamber musician. He made his American debut at the Union County Art Center in New Jersey. His solo and chamber music performances include recitals at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, at The Greater Princeton Steinway Society, participating in New York Library Concert Series, as well as concerts at the United Nations Concert Hall and Bechstein Piano Centre in New York City.
