Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, February 2013
His Liszt is remarkable. The F minor Transcendental Study's brand of miraculous virtuosity, at once tumultuous and limpid, is marvellously captured.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2013
In an age of much standardised playing, his performances are vividly personal both in technique and in character...few have carried the richly ornamented vocal lines [of the Petrarch Sonnets] forwards with a more breathless ardour and momentum...then there is Ravel's Gaspard in a performance of rare imaginative resource...This is a record I shall return to for an ever-renewed sense of wonder and fascination.

The Telegraph, 15th February 2013
The macabre images of Ravel's Gaspard de la nuit, in which Sudbin's brilliant technical command is allied to limpid, subtle tonal shading and luminosity of texture, are captured with a haunting chill in this performance, and the Saint-Sadns opens up wondrous vistas of colour and atmosphere. This is a truly great disc, inspired and inspiring.
