Grigory Sokolov: Bio

Grigory Sokolov is considered one of the world's greatest living pianists. He amazes both public and critics alike; by using little pedal, and thus superior finger-work, he draws from the concert grand an immense variety of sounds; he has an unlimited palette of colours, a spontaneous imagination and a magical control of line. His interpretations are poetic and highly individual and he has an unbelievably wide repertoire ranging from the 12th century music of Perotinus through to 20th century composers.

Born in Leningrad, he began music studies when he was five years old and at the age of sixteen he embarked upon a great international career, having been awarded the First Prize at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow.

Grigory Sokolov is a regular guest of the most prestigious concert halls and festivals of Europe. He has worked with orchestras including the London Philharmonia, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, New York Philharmonic, Münchner Philharmoniker, Wiener Symphoniker, Montreal Symphony, Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala, Moscow and St. Petersburg Philharmonics, and has worked with many of the world's most prominent conductors including Myung-Whung Chung, Valery Gergiev, Herbert Blomstedt, Neeme Järvi, Sakari Oramo, Trevor Pinnock, Andrew Litton, Walter Weller and Moshe Atzmon…

Sokolov's live recordings of Mozart and Rachmaninov's concertos, set for release on 10 March 2017, are not "new" in chronological terms. But they are fresh and likely to remain so, no matter how many times we hear them. The Mozart was made at the 2005 Salzburg Mozart Week and the Rachmaninov dates from a decade earlier, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall during the centenary season of the BBC Proms. "Such is his intensity that Sokolov carries everything and everyone along with him," observed the Salzburger Nachrichten in response to the pianist's reading of K488. TheLondonTimes was equally moved by his account of Rachmaninov's fiendishly difficult Third Concerto, which Sokolov "swept through…like a hurricane." The Independent responded by celebrating "an outstanding performance" by "a major pianistic force."
