Notes & Reviews:

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'.

The Guardian, 30th March 2016
Sudbin makes no apology for using the full tonal resources that a modern Steinway can offer in works composed for the harpsichord; playing the sonatas on a piano, he says, is effectively equivalent to making piano transcriptions of the originals, and the range of keyboard colour and pedal effects he conjures up for his selection is consistently dazzling.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2016
He shares with Horowitz an ability to conjure up landscapes and narratives within these sonatas, so vividly and intensely are they etched.

Long immersed in Scarlatti's music, Sudbin is an ardent advocate, his fearless Russian-school technique making light weather of even the most breakneck writing: rhythms are crisp and buoyant; virtuoso passagework is dashed off with devil-may-care abandon. This is impressive playing, by any standards.

Reviews

"Glistening Pearls"
It amazes just how much great writing Scarlatti packed into his keyboard sonatas which range anywhere from 2 ˝ to 7 minutes. On average these compact gems are 3-4 minutes long. Present throughout are a wealth of thematic, harmonic, rhythmic and contrapuntal ideas. This marks Mr. Sudbin’s 2nd disc devoted to the composer. In terms of expressivity and interpretive shaping, Mr. Sudbin ranks with the best, past or present. His playing is refined and nuanced, muscular when required. In Mr. Sudbin’s very capable hands, these sonatas emerge, more than ever, as perfectly conceived poetic fancies. The superbly detailed and three dimensional recording only adds to this impression. The Super Audio version is particularly effective in conveying dynamic and coloristic subtleties. The tremendously interesting liner notes are courtesy of the pianist.
