Roman Turovsky is a painter and lutenist-composer. He was born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1961, and emigrated to New York City in 1979. He began composing seriously in the early 1990s, simultaneously embarking on a career of a prolific figurative/representational artist-painter, and participated in many exhibitions. His first one-man show was held in June 2006 in New York. Eight of his paintings are in the permanent collection of the International Marian Institute at the University of Dayton.


As a composer he largely limited himself to the instrumental idiom of the Baroque lute and the torban, eventually producing numerous instrumental and vocal compositions, some of which were premiered by Luca Pianca at several international festivals (Salamanca, Lisbon, Schwetzingen, Vilnius, Vicenza, Urbino, Metz and Paris), Roland Ferrandi in Corte, Simon Paulus at Wolfenbüttel and Jindrich Macek in Pribyslav. He also collaborated with Paulo Galvão and Hans Kockelmans in a series of experimental works composed jointly. His works have been recorded by Robert MacKillop, and Christopher Wilke on lute, as well as Angelo Barricelli on guitar, and Ernst Stolz on viola da gamba.


He is a founding member of Vox Saeculorum and The Delian Society, two international groups devoted to preservation and perpetuation of tonal music.
