Friday Lunchtime at the Cathedral: Roman Rudnytsky (piano)

Roman Rudnytsky is an internationally active concert pianist of Ukrainian background whose frequent performances take him all over the world. As of 2014, he had performed in 100 countries! In addition to performances in capital cities and important musical centers, he often plays in places away from the musical mainstream, bringing the world and pleasure of classical music to audiences which seldom experience this type of music in live performance.

In addition to his many recitals, Roman Rudnytsky has also appeared as a soloist with many orchestras around the world. He also conducts master classes and workshops for local piano students and teachers during the course of his travels in places ranging from universities to small, rural towns.

Roamn Rudnytsky is now “Professor Emeritus” of Youngstown State University (Dana School of Music), where he was on the piano and music faculty since 1972. He previously served on the piano faculties of the Indiana University School of Music  and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory, in addition to being “Artist-in-Residence” at two Australian universities.

Home-made sandwiches (£2) and hot and cold drinks (£1) are available from 11.45am in the south transept. The concert lasts approximately 45 minutes.

Admission is free with a retiring collection.

Southwell Minster’s popular lunchtime concerts take place at 12.15pm on many Fridays, with performers coming from around the country to perform a wide variety of instrumental and vocal music in the spectacular setting of the Cathedral Nave.
