Reviews

  • “Ostrovsky, a pianist who has been a fixture on the American chamber-music scene since he emigrated from the former Soviet Union almost twenty years ago, is the trio’s [Moscow Conservatory Trio] rock-solid center.”
    - Stephen Wigler, The Sun, 11/5/96
     
  • “Their performance of Rachmaninoff’s demanding Elegiac Trio in G minor was a seamless tapestry of richly woven colors and harmonies, making one wish the piece would last forever.”
    - Judy Gruber, The Washington Post, 10/07/93
     
  • “Well as (Isaac) Stern mostly played, it could be that his greatest favor of the evening was in acquainting the public with the piano playing of Paul Ostrovsky, a young Moscow-born graduate of the Moscow Conservatory who emigrated to this country in 1979.”
    - Albert Goldberg, The Los Angeles Times, 9/22/84
     
  • “Ostrovsky, with rich passages in the left hand and nimble delicate passages in the right, matched [Schlomo] Mintz for making difficult playing seem effortless.”
    - Charles McCurdy, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2/27/84

In addition to his wide-ranging activities as a chamber musician with the renowned Moscow Conservatory Trio, Mr. Ostrovsky has performed orchestral repertoire with such orchestras as the New Jersey Symphony, Chicago Sinfonietta, and Richmond Symphony.
