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 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. Bach's 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 Adams's 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 Bernstein's Age of Anxiety with Michael Tilson Thomas conducting, in San Francisco and on tour, and last May he was featured in Martin's Petite Symphonie concertant.
Noe Valley Chamber Music has been presenting superb chamber music in San Francisco since 1992. NVCM offers concerts of excellent quality at an affordable price, as well as opportunities for audience participation and socialization. We encourage performers to talk informally about their music from the stage; thus members of our community experience outstanding concert performances in an informal, yet authentic chamber music tradition.
