During this time, he also studied privately with Leon Fleisher in Baltimore, Byron Janis in New York, and then subsequently for five years with Philippe Entremont and Gaby Casadesus in Paris.  Zank has performed widely in Europe and the United States, appearing in numerous recital and chamber music venues as well as soloist with the Bordeaux, Toulouse and French radio orchestras in France, the Florida Symphony, Boston Pops and other regional orchestras in the United States. His scholarly work includes contributions to topics as varied as American music, orchestration, organology, performance practice, French music of the 19th and 20th centuries, and two monographs on the music of Maurice Ravel (most recently, Irony and Sound, in the distinguished Eastman Music Series, University of Rochester Press, 2009).
