Grigory Sokolov is undoubtedly one of the greatest pianists of this time. Anti-star par excellence, reserved and far from any eccentricity and glamor, Sokolov is loved and celebrated today by an enthusiastic following. International critics particularly praise the subtlety of his musical world, his absolute technical control, and the ever-surprising originality of his interpretations. He usually plays one program at a time for an entire year in all of his concerts, achieving a familiarity and depth that captivates fans as much as people attending a piano recital for the first time.
"No question, Grigory Sokolov has the power to enchant people with his art. (...) In the best moments, he elicits a sound from the grand piano that is removed from all earthly heaviness," FonoForum recently raved about Grigory Sokolov's playing.
The program is yet to be announced.
