Robin Sutherland (Piano)

Born: USA

The American pianist, Robin Sutherland, studied with Rosina Lhevinne at the Juilliard School and with Paul Hersh at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. While still an undergraduate, he was appointed principal pianist of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra (SFS) by Seiji Ozawa. The recipient of numerous awards, Sutherland was selected at 17 to be sole participant from the USA at the International Bach Festival, held at Lincoln Center. He was a finalist in the International Bach Competition in Washington DC and has performed all of J.S. Bachís keyboard works.

An avid chamber musician, Robin Sutherland is co-director of the Telluride Players and a regular performer at the Bay Chamber Concerts in Rockport, Maine. Many composers have dedicated works to him, and among the world premieres in which he has participated was that of John Adamsís Grand Pianola Music, with members of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.

A frequent soloist with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, Robin Sutherland has been featured in Leonard Bernsteinís Age of Anxiety with Michael Tilson Thomas conducting, in San Francisco and on tour, and last May he was featured in Martinís Petite Symphonie concertante. In 1996, his recording of J.S. Bachís Goldberg Variations (BWV 988) was released on the díNote label.
