Technical Mastery

Yevgeny Sudbin
plays Rachmaninov -
heard by
LUCAS BALL

'... most of the time, what Sudbin does with these fiendishly difficult works is hard to criticise.'

Rachmaninov: Piano Concertos 2 and 3 - Yevgeny Sudbin / BBC Symphony Orchestra / Sakari Oramo. © 2017 BBC, BIS Records AB

Throughout this rendition of Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 3 in D minor there is great phrasing and a sense of direction in the melodic line, made all the more poignant by delicacy, hairpins, and exciting build-ups to heartfelt moments. Yevgeny Sudbin does, of course, have technical mastery in florid passages, as well as a remarkable ability to deliver delicate passages with precision.

There is always a sense of 'arrival' whenever the cyclic theme occurs even if we the listeners may get taken elsewhere (key-wise and emotionally) in subsequent passages.I personally prefer Rachmaninov's original rather than this 'ossia version' because of its brilliant light-hearted quality...
