Debut Recital on 180g Double LP!

Hailed as the "greatest pianist alive" (The Independent), Grigory Sokolov has long been regarded as an exceptional artist, and one who has always shunned the recording studio. Now signed exclusively to Deutsche Grammophon, he makes his debut on the label with a live recording of a critically-acclaimed recital from the 2008 Salzburg Festival of central repertoire: Mozart, Chopin & 6 encores.

Considered one of the world’s leading pianists, and adored by his public in sold-out concerts, Sokolov is a rare and inspiring talent devoted solely to his art and his audience.

"Sokolov stunned his audience with a kind of pianism, musicianship and artistry one thought had vanished forever." -San Francisco Chronicle

"...he is inimitable. His Chopin Preludes, for example, have no time for the notion of a freely Romantic melodic line being kept in check by a Classical accompaniment...he begins unhurriedly, as if the music were gently rousing itself into life. But whereas in less imaginative hands the results could seem mannered or overly drawn out, here it's mesmerising." -Harriet Smith, Gramophone Online

"...[the imagination and concentration of his playing are] transfixing...The recording also captures another characteristic of a Sokolov recital -- the breadth and inquiring nature of his repertoire...It is simply a fact that, listening to Sokolov, you know unequivocally that you are in the presence of someone extraordinary, someone possessing special insights and a thoroughly individual way of articulating, clarifying and communing with music so that his interpretations seem to find its very heart...a recital of truly exceptional stature." -Geoffrey Norris, The Daily Telegraph (London)
