Yevgeny Sudbin has a growing list of award-winning recordings and returns to Singapore on August 5 to perform Rachmaninov's Paganini Rhapsody, the slow variation of which is among the composer's most memorable creations. 

Maestro Lan Shui will also conduct the Second Symphony by 19th-century Hungarian composer Karl Goldmark, and Prokofiev's Classical Symphony, an affectionately cheeky tribute to Haydn. 

Born in St Petersburg in 1980, Yevgeny Sudbin displayed exceptional musical talents from an early age and in 1987 entered the Specialist Music School of the St. Petersburg Conservatory. In 1990 he continued his studies in Berlin and then moved to London where he has lived since 1997, where he studied with Christopher Elton at the Purcell School and the Royal Academy of Music.
