With his second concerto disc, Yevgeny Sudbin celebrates the close relationship between two great Russian composers: Sergei Rachmaninov and Nikolai Medtner. Medtner would encourage his more famous colleague during the latter’s bouts of self-doubt, while Rachmaninov early on recognized Medtner’s unique gifts, pronouncing him the ‘greatest composer of our time’. The most sincere testament to their friendship is embodied in these two concertos, which the composers dedicated to one another.

***

“Sudbin's playing is vivacious”

The Telegraph

23rd November 2009

*****

“It is a huge asset to have a pianist of Sudbin’s stature and sensitivity championing music that can lie unpardonably overlooked by the wayside... Sudbin’s compelling performance... gives new life to a version [of the Rachmaninov] that has a breadth and passionate dynamism all its own.”

BBC Music Magazine

January 2010

*****

“…exhilarating, barnstorming, spine-tingling performance [of the Rachmaninov]… Sudbin… stresses the work's connection to… Medtner's… Second Concerto… Sudbin… sets his individual stamp on this rhythmically vital and superbly constructed score. BIS's recording is absolutely outstanding. The North Carolina Symphony play as if possessed...”

Gramophone Magazine

February 2010

“…Sudbin's relatively low-key playing, never leaves you in doubt of his musicianship and dexterity.”
