Typically, one half of a Sokolov programme enters his concert repertoire in October, the other half in February. He takes no advice and brooks no discussion when planning it: his choices are directed simply by what he happens to find most interesting and suitable. The only way to find out how and why he compiled this programme of early and late Beethoven – the Sonata op. 2 no. 3 and the Bagatelles op. 119 – and two sets of late Brahms pieces is to listen to it. He is not going to reveal anything in words. Anyone familiar with his recitals, however, will know that no two performances of the same repertoire are ever quite alike.
