Victor Rosenbaum, piano

Internationally known pianist and teacher, Victor Rosenbaum, has been a mainstay of Boston’s musical community for more than five decades. He studied with Elizabeth Brock and Martin Marks while growing up in Indianapolis, and went on to study with Rosina Lhevinne at the Aspen Festival and Leonard Shure in New York while earning degrees at Brandeis University and Princeton. Rosenbaum has concertized widely as soloist and chamber musician in the U.S., Europe, Israel, Brazil, Russia, and Asia. A committed chamber musician, he has collaborated with such artists as Leonard Rose, Paul Katz, Laurence Lesser, Arnold Steinhardt, Robert Mann, Joseph Silverstein, James Buswell, Malcolm Lowe, Walter Trampler, and the Brentano, Borromeo, and Cleveland String Quartets. A renowned educator, Rosenbaum’s 16 years as Director and President of the Longy School of Music (1985-2001) transformed the school into a full-fledged degree granting conservatory as well as a thriving community music school. He was on the faculty of Mannes School of Music in New York from 2004-2017, a Visiting Professor of Piano at the Eastman School of Music, and a guest teacher at Juilliard. During his long tenure on the faculty of New England Conservatory, Rosenbaum chaired its Piano and Chamber Music Departments for more than a decade. Recently retired from NEC, he now devotes his time to guest teaching, master classes, recording, concerts, and an Artist-in-Residence position in Taiwan.
