Raphaël Sudan

Biography :

Raphaël Sudan is both a piano and an improvisation professor at the « Ecole de Musique du Pays d'Enhaut », in Château d'Oex, Switzerland. He is also the titular pianist of « La Landwehr », official music society of the City and the State of Fribourg. Despite his young age, he gives many recitals, most frequently in Switzerland, Europe and North America, and is frequently invited by orchestras to perform as a solist.

Born in 1985 in Fribourg, Raphaël Sudan follows his training of classical piano at the Conservatoire de Fribourg, where he first receives the teaching diploma with the best marks and the distinction "excellent" in 2008. Then he receives his Master of Arts in Musical Performance at the Haute Ecole de Musique in Lausanne, in Ricardo Castro's class. Currently, he follows some postgrade studies at the Conservatori del Liceu, in Barcelona, Spain, with distinguished pianist and professor Luiz de Moura Castro. At the same time, he takes lessons as a private student with professor Paul Badura-Skoda, to improve his knowledges in the classical styles. In 2014, he releases his first piano-solo album, featuring works of Bach, Schubert, Liszt, and one of his own compositions.

Next to his classical training, he studies jazz piano, before choosing to practice free improvisation. He will improve this discipline with prof. Francis Vidil, at the Versailles Conservatory (France), where he earned the audience award at the final improvisation contest.

In 2010, he becomes an active member of the International Society for Improvised Music, which gave him the occasion to play with renown improvisers from all around the world, while travelling or assisting to international improvisation conferences. He also regularily gives masterclasses in several countries, featuring classical music and / or improvised music.

As a composer, he wrotes numerous works, including a Secular Oratorio for choir and symphonic orchestra ; three Musicals ; a piano sonata, as well as many choral or instrumental works. He still explores the multiple musical styles of our time, while always keeping a very strong attachment with romantic music and improvised music. He is also the author of many arrangements.

He played in numerous musical bands, featuring jazz and rock music, including the band « Time Grid », that recorded its first album, « Life », in 2013.

Raphaël Sudan

Creatividad musical, sentido profundo de colores y atmósferas, gran control técnico y una expresividad muy variada. Esos son las palabras de los jueces que otorgaron el Premio Pierre et Renée Glasson a Raphaël Sudan, por el mismo programa que tocará este otoño en España. Mezclando música clásica, contemporánea e improvisación (Rameau, Liszt y Messiaen), la primera parte del recital representa una serie de cantos de pájaros. La segunda parte es un homenaje a Ludwig van Beethoven, con su Sonata op. 101.

Ganador del Premio Pierre et Renée Glasson en 2017, del Premio del Público al concurso de Improvisación del conservatorio de Versailles en 2009 y del Premio de la Dirección del conservatorio de Fribourg en 2008, Raphaël Sudan es un músico versátil, tanto en estilos clásicos y contemporáneos como en improvisación libre. Artista generoso, invita al público a adentrarse en un mundo sonoro poético, lleno de imaginación, respetando los estilos de los compositores que forman parte de su programa.
