For me, there is an amazing purity and honesty about the playing of Grigory Sokolov. I have to say that I actually dont much care what he is playing, because I already know that I will be thrilled.
On this DVD, we hear Grigory Sokolov as he performed Live at the Berlin Philharmonie. He played the following selections:
- Piano Sonata No. 29 in B-flat major, Op. 106 ‘Hammerklavier’
- Intermezzo in B flat minor, Op. 117 No. 2
- Les tendres plaintes
- Pièces de Clavecin 1724: Les Tourbillons
- Les Cyclopes
- La follette
- Les Sauvages
- 4 Impromptus, D899
- Klavierstücke (3), D946
This completely sold out concert took place on 5 June 2013 in the Philaharmonie Berlin, which is known for its exquisite acoustics.
