A cosmopolitan artist influenced by numerous cultures, Sodi Braide likes to explore a large repertoire, of different styles and periods. Born of Nigerian parents in Newcastle (United Kingdom), Sodi Braide started playing the piano at the age of 3 in Dublin, Ireland. He continued his musical studies in Nigeria and then in France, at the Conservatoire National Supérieur, Paris with Jacques Rouvier and Gerard Fremy, and at the Ecole Normale, Paris with Françoise Thinat.

Sodi Braide has won prizes in the international competitions of Pretoria, Seregno ("Ettore Pozzoli"), Leeds and Van Cliburn (Jury Discretional Prize).

My first contact with Schubert’s piano music was during my last years at the Paris Conservatory. The first works I learnt as a student were Bach Preludes and Fugues, Beethoven piano Sonatas, Chopin Etudes: standard repertoire for a young pianist. Nevertheless, toward the end of my studies, I learnt the Impromptu in F minor D935 and the Sonata in A minor D784, and found myself overwhelmed by Schubert’s sincerity…” – Sodi Braide
