RELEASE DATE: 05/06/2020
2 CD + 1 DVD

3 Years after his last recording Grigory Sokolov returns with a double album of live recordings from his triumphant 2019/20 tour. Focusing on early (Piano Sonata No. 3) and late Beethoven sonatas (Piano Sonatas Nos. 27 & 32) and Brahms’s autumnal piano pieces opp. 118 & 119, the “musical sorcerer” has fascinated audiences and critics across Europe: “Music making at the piano could hardly be more unaffected yet compelling...The music unfolds directly” (Süddeutsche Zeitung). “His pianism is stupendous...but Sokolov’s real magic occurs in the moment, in his fine art of making music live, transcending epochs, levitating, always mindful that our playing must end” (Tagesspiegel).

Grigory Sokolov will turn 70 on April 18, 2020!
