This is Alik Sudbin, son of Yevgeny, making his debut at my grand Victorian church-around-the-corner.


  • A.L. says:

    Beyond adorable. May he continue to flourish. No greater inspiration than his dad. And no better guidance.

  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    I do hope he has fun.

  • Tiredofitall says:

    Absolutely enchanting. Thank you.

  • IP says:

    Not happy until he does all 6 dances in a Bulgarian rhythm!

    Seriously: do you expect many comments? What can one say?

  • So pure, innocent and lovely!

  • Frank Flambeau says:

    I’d say he has a future if there is one.

  • Piano Enthusiast says:

    Big sister is no slouch either… https://youtu.be/UcHV06zh11s

  • Maria says:

    Lovely but hope he also has fun, and gets a normal childhood too.

  • christopher storey says:

    The little girl played the Rach G sharp minor beautifully : the small boy frankly really did not sound ready for it

  • guest says:

    That’s nothing. I played the Schumann Toccata at age 7. Of course, it was just a record I was playing, but still….

  • Andy says:

    Nine-year old Alicia de Larrocha playing Chopin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7f8nDViW1H0

  • Affreux Jojo says:

    The son of Sudbin
    Did he created him alone? Spontaneous generation?
    How about crediting the mother for bringing half of the package?

  • needs to learn not to bang the dampers with the pedal.

  • K Fitula says:

    Beautiful! Well done and more please.

  • Edward Seymour says:

    …lost in the music…wonderful…
