Tatiana Roitman

Pianist Tatiana Roitman has appeared as a soloist and recitalist across North America and Europe. The BBC hailed her performance of George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with Oxford Pops Orchestra as “formidable…both accurate and with rarely seen joy.” Mann’s radio broadcasts include Villa-Lobos' “Mystic Sextet,” on NPR's Performance Today, Bela Bartok's “Contrasts” on New York's classical music station WQXR, and Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” on Little Rock’s KLRE. Tatiana’s recording of the original, big band version of Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” was released on Naxos in the album Jazz Nocturne—American Concertos of the Jazz Age.

As a performer of contemporary works, Tatiana premiered “Speak No Evil” by E. McKinley at the American Composer’s Forum, and performed “For Don” by Milton Babbitt, with the composer in attendance, in celebration of his 90th birthday at Tanglewood’s Contemporary Music Festival. As the recipient of the Peggy Rockefeller Memorial Fellowship at Tanglewood,, Tatiana worked with James Levine, Dawn Upshaw, Yo-Yo Ma, Charles Rosen, and Claude Frank.

Tatiana’s interpretations of solo, concerto and chamber repertoire are characterized by their warmth and emotional intensity. As a versatile artist whose engagements range from concerto, solo, and chamber performances to Igor Stravinsky’s “Petrushka” with the San Diego Symphony and the Mainly Mozart education series Joyful Noise, she strongly believes the only way that “art” music can remain pertinent in the 21st century is by conveying and elevating its emotional quintessence.

Tatiana’s recent performances include Beethoven’s Piano Concerto #4 op.58, Saint-Saens’ Concerto #4 op.44 in San Diego, CA, Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with Bismarck-Mandan Symphony in Maryland, Beethoven’s “Choral Fantasy” in Sydney, Australia, “Rhapsody in Blue” with the Arkansas Symphony, and chamber music concerts throughout the US. During the 2012-2013 concert season, Tatiana will be returning to Lexus River Rhapsodies in Little Rock and appearing in other chamber music recitals throughout the state.

Dr. Mann holds graduate degrees from Manhattan School of Music, the Royal Academy of Music in London, and the University of Minnesota. Her principal teachers include Prof. Tatiana Sarkissova, Dr. Marc Silverman, and Prof. Alexander Braginsky. Currently she is the Artist-in-Residence at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Tatiana is also available with other instrumentalists, as one of two pianists in Duo Arete, and in the piano trio Wild Beats.
