Pianist Sudbin Returns to Symphony
Extraordinary pianist Yevgeny Sudbin will be the North Carolina Symphony's guest artist in concerts at Memorial Hall in Chapel Hill Thursday, Nov. 6, and at Meymandi Concert Hall at Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 7-8. All concerts begin at 8 p.m.
Sudbin, who plays with a spine-tingling brilliance that has been compared to that of a young Vladimir Horowitz, is garnering lavish praise from critics and audiences around the world. He is widely recognized as one of the world's most interesting and exciting young pianists.
Sudbin will perform Medtner's "Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 50," a work he will also record as featured guest artist on the second of two compact discs the North Carolina Symphony will release under the Scandinavian classical music label BIS.
In January, Sudbin performed and recorded Rachmaninoff's "Piano Concerto No. 4," the first of the two works to be heard on this CD, due for release in 2010.
Other works on the November programs include Beethoven's brawny "Coriolan Overture" and Shostakovich's taut and energetic "Symphony No. 1."
