Yevgeny Sudbin

Yevgeny Sudbin has already been a guest of the Berliner Klavierfestival. He was received enthusiastically: "Outstanding, ...simply stunning," said the FAZ while regretting that he does not play more often in Berlin.

Agreeing with this sentiment, Sudbin was invited back to the Berliner Klavierfestival and presents a varied programme from Haydn and Beethoven to Rachmaninoff and Scriabin. With this selection of works we can look forward to a first half of German classicism and romantic Russian music in the second. We are especially happy that Yevgeny Sudbin will, at our request, again play Scriabin's Sonata No. 5, the performance of which thrilled the Berlin audience at the festival in 2013.
Yevgeny Sudbin

Yevgeny Sudbin has been hailed by The Telegraph as ‘potentially one of the greatest pianists of the 21st century’. In the midst of a 7-year and 14-album collaboration with BIS Records, all of Yevgeny’s recordings have met with critical acclaim and are regularly featured as CD of the Month by BBC Music Magazine or Editor’s Choice by Gramophone. His Scriabin recording was awarded CD of the Year by The Telegraph and received the MIDEM Classical Award for Best Solo Instrument Recording at Cannes. It was described by Gramophone as ‘a disc in a million’ while the International Record Review stated that Yevgeny’s Rachmaninov recording ‘confirms him as one of the most important pianistic talents of our time’.

Sudbin was born in St. Petersburg and has lived in Britain since 1997. For his numerous appearances in the world he gets excellent reviews; his recordings havbe also won outstanding reviews. Sudbin plays on the world's most prestigious concert halls and guests at many important music festivals.

Yevgeny Sudbin records exclusively for BIS. For several years he has been involved in the recording of the complete Beethoven piano concertos. His Scriabin recording was euphorically reviewed in the prestigious British magazine Gramophones : "No pianist of any generation has, in my experience, captured Scriabin's volatility so vividly as Sudbin. This, put suitably euphorically, is a disc in a million."
