about this event
Chosen as ‘One to Watch’ by International Piano Magazine, pianist Iyad Sughayer’s debut album, the Khachaturian Piano Works, on BIS Records received critical acclaim when it was released in November 2019. The album was described by Gramophone as ‘exhilarating and delivered with perfect clarity’ and ‘He captures the music’s essence with such a close sense of re-creative identity that it feels on occasion as though he could be composing it as he goes along. An outstanding debut’ BBC Music Magazine.
Sughayer appeared as a soloist with many leading orchestras including the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the European Union Chamber Orchestra and the Manchester Camerata.
Future engagements include a series of recitals in the UK, Europe and the Middle East and the recording of Khachaturian’s Piano and Orchestral works with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for BIS Records.
