[Sodi Braide: Franck, œuvres pour piano; Lyrinx\Talents LYR 249 (2006)]

AfriClassical has followed the career of Sodi Braide with interest for the past two years. An audio sample of his Franck CD can be accessed from the home page of the blog. Here is a reminder of his appearance as a “Ravinia Rising Star” on Friday, Oct. 30, 2009:
“A cosmopolitan artist influenced by numerous cultures, Sodi Braide likes to explore a large repertoire of different styles and periods. Prize winner in the 2003 Leeds Competition and Jury Discretionary Prize at the 2005 Van Cliburn Competition, he performs recitals and chamber concerts throughout Europe and the United States. In 1994 Braide was invited to perform in South Africa, becoming one of the first black African pianists to perform there after the end of apartheid.”
