"Mikhail was everything and more that you would want in a pianist for an event" - Andrew F. Jan 2016.
Mikhail Romanov is a brilliant and profound performer, winner of international competitions. Playing as a solo pianist and in duet with his mom-violinist, Mikhail brings the highest level of musicianship to every project he involved in.
He was on time, professional, kind, and played beautifully. Everything I could hope for.
Mikhail played at our wedding ceremony and during our cocktail hour. He played the exact songs we requested and he really sounded amazing! We got so many compliments from our guests about him. I would highly recommend him for any type of party. He knew exactly what he needed to do and did not bother us before the ceremony which I really appreciated since everything got so hectic.
Mikhail was wonderful! His extensive repertoire, flawless presentation, and charm lent a level of sophistication to our son’s 40th birthday. Mikhail communicated often before the event to ensure our tastes were met. He arrived on time and played on...mindful of the requests of our guests. Mikhail is a gem. He made the party a memorable one for all. Than you Mikhail! I’m looking forward to the next time!
We hosted a corporate cocktail reception, and Mikhail was a great addition to our event. He arrived on time, was very courteous and played beautifully. We asked last minute if we could pay for him to stay an extra hour and he agreed. I recommend Mikhail for any event.
Thank you Mikhail for making our annual Christmas Eve party such fun. The background music during cocktails and dinner were lovely and best of all was the lively caroling later in the evening. Many thanks!
Mikhail was perfect. He showed up on time, played a wonderful mix of classics, Christmas music and some standards from Porter, Gershwin etc. We would love to have him again. Very talented.
Mikhail was great. He played beautiful music on our upright piano and everyone enjoyed. He showed up early (and we even hired him last minute), brought along his own digital piano in case we needed it...and played very nice music as per our requests. Definitely a top notch pianist and gives party a real high end feel.
Mikhail is fantastic! Came early. Totally prepared. So nice. Amazing piano player. Hire him!
Mikhail was amazing! He was ontime, dressed very well including a bow tie and didn't even use sheet music! He played a mix that included current music that people recognized as soon as he started playing. Took very short breaks and made sure we had background music when he did so there was never silence. I would 100% recommend and will definitely use him again.
My husband and I were very happy with his presentation. He was punctual and it was an asset to our dinner party. I recommend.
Mikhail is perfect! He is very talented, a professional and can play everything you request! He and violinist played for my wedding, everyone complimented how they sounded. People thought at first it was background music from mp3 that was playing but realized it was professional musicians playing for the wedding. They made my wedding beautiful.
Mikhail was very professional, prepared, and everyone had an amazing time! I would definitely use him again for another event! Highly recommend him
Mikael played beautifully and learned several songs specific to the occasion, a celebration of life. He proved flexible, intuitive, and a pleasure to work with.
I hosted a dinner party for roughly 50 guests last week and Mikhail was amazing. He played a mixture of classical, classics and today's music which set a great vibe for the night. He was also very pleasant and professional. Highly suggest hiring him if you are looking for a pianist!
Michael was at the venue on time, ready and well prepared. He performed flawlessly was a team player and clearly a well trained and professional musician. I can only recommend him and it does not matter what style you like him to play - he is adaptable and simply a great joy to work with. He has excellent interpersonal skill s and is a very humble person. I would hire him any day and look forward to working with him in the future.
Mikhail was excellent.
I hired Mikhail to play a piece of mine at my senior composition recital. The piece was classically themed, and Mikhail quoted me a very fair price. He showed up well dressed, on time and delivered an exceptional performance. He was also very pleasant and professional to deal with. His performance was the icing on the cake to the evening.
Mikhail's background music really livened up the party.
We saw Mikhail at an engagement party and thought he was incredible. He played a variety of music throughout the party from classical to recent pop songs. At one point he had a majority of the people at the party dancing. After spending the night listening to his music we decided to book him for a small dinner party at my house for the following weekend. Mikhail emailed me several times before the event and even sent me a music list for my approval. He arrived a half hour before my guests and played the night away. People at the party are still talking about him. He did a fabulous job had the guest dancing around my house and singing along. I would recommend Mikhail for any party or event. I can't wait to use him again.
Mikhail did our music for a cocktail party I hosted on 1/30/16 Saturday evening. I myself and everyone at the party totally enjoyed his music. Mikhail is very pleasant to deal with and extremely talented on the piano. I must say he added such a nice touch and I was so pleased how everyone raved to me about him. I hope to have him again at any future events that I plan. He also was very accommodating on any request you may have for music. I would highly recommend him for a pianist for your next event.
Mikhail was everything and more that you would want in a pianist for an event ..
Super pleasant, prompt, adaptable to last minute changes, great range of styles from
Classical to jazz to show tunes to standards.
Fantastic talented musician. ! Hire him ..we were beyond pleased !!!
Mikhail played beautifully a wide range of jazz piano pieces for a dinner party in Manhattan. He caught the mood of the event brilliantly and adapted to the circumstances. He produces a beautiful, elegant and crisp sound. The repertoire was varied and interesting with wonderful arrangements. All my guests were extremely impressed by his playing and pleasant demeanor. A must hire. Isaac
Mikhail played for Christmas Eve at my Italian restaurant. Dinner guests loved him. He is very talented, and possesses an expansive repertoire of songs; he was able to perform various requests to please everyone! Very professional, and conscious of his volume level. I immensely enjoyed Mikhail's playing, and would highly recommend him for any event or get-together to set the mood just right. He played for three hours, and never once did I get bored, because he does not repeat songs, and knows how to alternate songs so it constantly sounds fresh. I look forward to working with Mikhail again.
Mikhail played at my family Christmas dinner and he was wonderful!! We all loved him and I can’t say enough good things about him. He’s warm and friendly, very professional, and perfectly charming. He’s an excellent pianist and treated us to a little jazz, a little classical, great standards from the 40s, and of course Christmas songs. Thank you, Mikhail. It was a pleasure meeting you.
