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…

Grigory Sokolov - The Salzburg Recital (press commentary)

Legendary Pianist Grigory Sokolov Releases His First Album in Almost Twenty Years. New album features critically acclaimed 2008 Salzburg Festival Recital and is the pianist's first release as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon recording artist. This recital, given in 2008 at the Salzburg Festival, amply demonstrates the distinctive nature of Sokolov's artistry, featuring repertoire from Rameau onwards. The program begins with two particularly beautiful Mozart sonatas in F major K 280 with its dark-hued central siciliano movement, and the brilliant and tender K 332 – both played with Sokolov's habitual care, intensity and wealth of characterization. The second half consists of Chopin's 24 Préludes op. 28, traversing an extraordinary spectrum of color and concept even within those pieces that last less than a minute.
