Resonating with his experience in playing both baroque basso-continuo and jazz, Anthony Romaniuk enjoys bringing music into the present moment through improvising concerto cadenzas or preludes and interludes in solo recitals. He has collaborated with violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, cellist Pieter Wispelwey, Vox Luminis, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Stuttgart Kammerorchester and the Australian String Quartet; and given recitals at the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Vienna), the Concertgebouw in Bruges, Restoration House (Rochester, UK) and LACMA (Los Angeles).

Having obtained degrees from the Manhattan School of Music and the conservatories in Den Haag and Amsterdam, Romaniuk continues to work closely with the noted pedagogue Sally Sargent. His awards include First Prize at the 2011 Westfield International Fortepiano Competition (USA) and Laureate at the 2010 Musica Antiqua Competition in Bruges.

A native Australian, he is based in Belgium where he is a faculty member at the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles. Highlights for his 2015/16 season include solo recitals (incl. New York, Melbourne and Florence), duo performances with violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja in Luxembourg and Gstaad, a residency at BAM Next Wave in Brooklyn, and recordings including a Schubert recital disc (Paladino Music, Vienna) and contributions to Kopatchinskaja’s “Take Two” (Alpha).
