Yevgeny Sudbin

Yevgeny Sudbin has been hailed by The Telegraph as “potentially one of the greatest pianists of the 21st century.” He has collaborated with some of the world’s most influential conductors, including Neeme Järvi, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Osmo Vänskä, Hannu Lintu, and Andrew Litton. His love of chamber music has led him to collaborate with many other instrumentalists including Ilya Gringolts, Hilary Hahn, Julia Fischer, and the Chilingirian Quartet. Appearances at festivals include Aspen, Mostly Mozart, Tivoli, Nohant, La Roque d’Anthéron, Menton and Verbier.

“One of the most searching and inspired of today’s pianists”, Sudbin’s recordings have been met with critical acclaim and are regularly featured as CD of the Month by BBC Music Magazine or Editor’s Choice by Gramophone. His recording of works by Scriabin was described by Gramophone as “a disc in a million’ while the International Record Review stated that his Rachmaninov recording ‘confirms him as one of the most important pianistic talents of our time.”
