Pollack first garnered the music world's attention when he became a prize-winner in the International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow. Following, he concertized throughout the former Soviet Union and became the first American to record there for Melodya. Later, these were re-issued in Europe and the U.S. under several different labels. Among his many recordings, was the Samuel Barber Sonata, which Pollack premiered in Russia. Subsequent recordings were for Columbia.

His most recent CD for Naxos is the complete solo piano works of Samuel Barber. Other recent CDs include an all-Chopin recital recorded in the Bolshoi Zal of the Philharmonic in St. Petersburg, Russia, released by Sony on their Infinity Digital label, nationally and on Digital Focus, internationally, as well as two CDs of popular short romantic works for Four Winds.

Pollack has held several visiting faculty positions including The Juilliard School, Columbia University and Yale's School of Music. Presently he is on the faculty of the University of Southern California.

Pollack began his studies at the age of four and made his debut with the New York Philharmonic at the age of nine, performing the Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1. He is a graduate of the Juilliard School from the class of the legendary Rosina Lhevinne, herself a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory. Pollack continued his graduate studies at the Hochschule für Musik in Vienna under a Fulbright scholarship with Bruno Seidlhofer, at the Academia Chigiana.in Siena, Italy with Guido Agosti and was selected as one of 12 pianists internationally to participate in a special Beethoven Master Class of the late Wilhelm Kempff in Positano, Italy.
