Mr. Sudbin has an ongoing exclusive recording contract with the Swedish label BIS, with numerous solo CD’s already released featuring, to date, repertoire by Scarlatti, Haydn, Chopin, Scriabin (awarded the MIDEM Classical Award for best solo instrument CD at Cannes), Rachmaninoff and Liszt/Saint-Saëns/Ravel.

In the 2008-09 season, Yevgeny Sudbin embarked on recording (for BIS) the complete cycle of Beethoven piano concertos with the Minnesota Orchestra under Osmo Vänskä. The first and second releases, Concertos Nos. 4 and 5, and Piano Concerto No. 3, coupled with the Mozart Concerto No. 24. Both have received great critical acclaim. The cycle will be completed with the final CD of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2, currently scheduled to be recorded with Finland’s Tapiola Sinfonietta under Osmo Vänskä.

Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1980, Yevgeny displayed exceptional musical talent from an early age and, in 1987, he entered the Specialist Music School on the Conservatory in that city. In 1990, his family moved to Berlin where he continued his studies, and in 1997 he moved to London to study with the eminent Christopher Elton at the Royal Academy of Music, from which he graduated with highest honors.

The Pulvermacher Foundation, Alexis Gregory Foundation and Wall Trust have played important roles in Yevgeny Sudbin’s career. He makes his home in London with his wife and two young children.
