Biography
Victor Stanislavsky
Israel
Age 26





Ukrainian-born Victor Stanislavsky immigrated to Israel in 1990 and earned his master’s degree from Tel-Aviv University. He has performed with China’s National Symphony, Milan’s I Pomeriggi Musicali, the Romanian State Philharmonic, and most of Israel’s top orchestras. In 2008, he opened the Shanghai Piano Festival and also performed recitals in Canada; California, and France and numerous guest appearances in Israel. Mr. Stanislavsky credits his musical discipline to his three years of mandatory service with the Israeli Defense Forces. “I got through the harshest part — basic training — and was assigned to a base which, lucky for me, was very near the conservatory. Sometimes I had to run back and forth between the base and school a few times a day,” he comments. “Now, I live with my music all the time. The only sacrifices I make are the ones that make me a better musician!”. http://blackstoneartistsmanagement.com/bam_stanislavsky.html
