Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian
Sudbin is at his most convincing in those larger musical canvases, whose sense of theatricality, emotional range and formal complexities he projects very vividly; the haunted, dark-hued account of the Fantasy is particularly impressive. But the smaller pieces respond less well to Sudbin's treatment: it's not heavy-handed, but places extra expressive weight on pieces that need a much more refined and delicately coloured approach.

The Telegraph
This glorious disc confirms Yevgeny Sudbin as one of the most searching and inspired of today's pianists...The playing is so beautiful, so full of life and so rich in imagination that all one really wants to do is sit back and listen to it over and over again without necessarily analysing what it is that makes it feel so "right" and so stimulating...This is a disc not to be missed. It is a triumph.

BBC Music Magazine
Sudbin gets my vote right at the start here by opening his Chopin recital with the Fantasy in F minor, one of the pinnacles of the composer's art...Sudbin captures its improvisatory qualities and unexpected shifts of texture. It's a satisfying start to this disc by a thoughtful pianist. But he loses my vote in some of the Nocturnes and Mazurkas...He redeems himself with powerful, poetic performances of the Third and Fourth Ballades.
