Whether as a pianist, composer, improviser, soloist, or bandleader, Ukrainian-born Vadim Neselovskyi creates inspired and unique music. His work has been played by jazz greats like Randy Brecker, Antonio Sanchez, Julian Lage, and Gary Burton, as well as classical artists (Daniel Gauthier, whose recording of Neselovskyi’s San Felio won an ECHO Classical Award) and symphony orchestras in the United States and Europe.

Other collaborations include vibraphonist Gary Burton and the Generations Quintet; the  Graz Philharmoniker, who performed his Prelude for Vibes on their New Year’s program; composer/saxophonist John Zorn who invited him to contribute to The Book Beriah, the final installment of his Masada project; and French horn/alphorn pioneer Arkady Shilkloper.

Recordings include Get Up and Go, Bez Mezh ( “no limits” in Ukrainian) by the International Symphony Orchestra (INSO) from Lviv, Ukraine, and his Odesa: A Musical Walk Through a Legendary City, released this June.
