Internationally known pianist
Member of the piano faculty at the Juilliard School.
Oxana Yablonskaya ( born December 6, 1938, Moscow) is a Russian and American pianist who has had an
active international performance career since the early 1960s. She began her career in the USSR and, although
winning several important competitions in the West, was denied permission by the Soviet government to accept
any performance engagements outside of the Soviet bloc. Frustrated by her career limitations, she emigrated to
the United States in 1977. Described by The New York Times as an “internationally known virtuoso” and “one of
the country’s most distinguished musical residents”, Yablonskaya has toured in concert and recital throughout the
world and has made numerous recordings. She is a member of the piano faculty at the Juilliard School.
