SUMMER FUNDRAISING CONCERT: 23rd JUNE
YEVGENY SUDBIN (piano)
We are very pleased to announce that the outstanding Russian pianist, Yevgeny Sudbin (now based in London), will be visiting us for this concert. Yevgeny's recent recording of Rachmaninov's 2nd and 3rd concertos is now one of the top recommendations on CD, but he is also renowned for his dynamic performances of Scriabin - this composer's works (along with pieces by Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin and Saint-Saëns) feature in this concert.
'Last month at London's Wigmore Hall, Yevgeny Sudbin gave a blistering recital which had as its climax the Ninth Piano Sonata by Scriabin...The sheer demonic terror that the performance evoked is recaptured on this superb disc, on which Sudbin asserts his credentials as an interpreter of Scriabin par excellence.'
