Sokolov plays Beethoven & Mozart
Performance date: 31/05/2017
From Mozart's unusually somber D minor Fantasy to Beethoven's transcendental final piano sonata: in this 2017 programme, Grigory Sokolov puts his unique skills to the service of late 18th- and early 19th-century Viennese classics – until the riches of his encores section, which include music from the French Baroque and Impressionist periods as well as German Romanticism. Sokolov's velvety touch, his apparently endless technical resources and his ability to immerse himself almost meditatively in the music help make this another recital to remember.
