«Virtuosity is not an objective in itself. It is a way to express the music hidden beyond the notes»

Born in 1985 in Fribourg –Switzerland, 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 studied classical piano in the conservatoire de Fribourg (Teaching Diploma ; Master of Arts in Musical Performance), followed by postgraduate studies at the Conservatori Liceu in Barcelona, and private lessons with Paul Badura- Skoda and Luiz de Moura Castro. He also studied jazz piano in Fribourg, and classical and contemporary improvisation at the Versailles Conservatory, where he earned the Public’s Choice Award in the Versailles Conservatory Improvisation Competition (2009). In 2018, he was granted a specialized Master of Arts in Free Improvisation at the Musik Akademie Basel and was acknowledged for his essay on improvisation in the history of occidental music.

His research on the parallel development between classical music and improvisation won him the "Pierre et Renée Glasson Prize" in 2017. Started by the State of Fribourg the jury acknowledged "his musical creativity, his deep sense of colors and atmospheres, his technical mastery and the richness of his expressivity". He is today one of the only classical musicians to combine these two disciplines within the classical repertoire.

His classical music repertoire ranges from the baroque epoch to contemporary music, with a special connection to the music of Bach, Beethoven and Liszt. His connection with the music of Franz Liszt has always been very strong and he has given world-acclaimed recitals and lectures focused on some of Liszt's most important piano works.: Sonata in B minor, “Après une Lecture de Dante”, First year of Pilgrimage, trenscendental etudes. His 40-page essay about the work “Après une Lecture de Dante” got him the “Director's Award” of the Conservatory of Fribourg (2008). His postgraduate studies with Luiz de Moura Castro and Paul Badura-Skoda brought him even closer to the spirit of Liszt : the heritage of those two eminent pianists made Raphael Sudan a 5th generation Liszt student descendant.
