Since bursting onto the scene in 2005 with his debut recording of works by Scarlatti, Yevgeny Sudbin’s playing has attracted the highest awards and superlative reviews from the piano critics. To launch the inaugural ‘Piano Weekend’, The Northern Aldborough Festival welcomes a true modern titan of the piano in performances of works by Tchaikovsky, Liszt, Scarlatti, Scriabin and Medtner.
‘Yevgeny Sudbin is already hailed as potentially one of the greatest pianists of the 21st Century.’
‘No pianist of any generation has, in my experience, captured Scriabin's volatility so vividly as Sudbin... All these performances are flecked with personal touches and brilliances above and beyond even Scriabin's wildest demands...This, put suitably euphorically, is a disc in a million.’
Bryce Morrison, Gramophone
Yevgeny Sudbin has been hailed by The Telegraph as ‘potentially one of the greatest pianists of the 21st century’. 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 was described by Gramophone as ‘a disc in a million’.
Yevgeny performs regularly in many of the world's finest venues, both in recital and with orchestra, while recent engagements and tours have included orchestras such as Leipzig Gewandhausorchester, Philharmonia Orchestra, London Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and many more. His performance of Rachmaninov's Concerto No.1 at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall was described by The Telegraph as ‘sublime.’
His love of chamber music has led him to collaborate with many other musicians including Ilya Gringolts, Hilary Hahn, Julia Fischer, the Chilingirian Quartet and many others.
