Yevgeny Sudbin was born in Saint Petersburg in 1980. As a child he moved to Berlin, then aged 17 to London where he studied at The Purcell School and at the Royal Academy of Music. He has given solo recitals and appeared with major orchestras as a soloist around the globe. During the 2018/19 season he will give recitals in Vancouver, Milan, London, Birmingham and Belgrade, and will appear with the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra of the National Centre for Performing Arts, Beijing and the London Chamber Orchestra. He has an extensive discography to which in 2018 he added a recording of late Beethoven sonatas. He is a visiting professor at the Royal Academy of Music.
Sudbin’s highly engaging programme ranges from the crystalline textures of Scarlatti to his own dazzling piano transcription of Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture. Finishing with Ravel’s demanding and revolutionary ‘Gaspard de la nuit’ will undoubtedly bring this recital to a thrilling conclusion.
“Sudbin’s great quality was his acute sense of characterisation, conveying not just the letter of the music through his consummate technique, but also its spirit through his intuition and inspiration. Any chance to hear him should be snapped up.” The Daily Telegraph.
