Sokolov - The Salzburg Recital / WFMT: New Release of the Week

Bookmark and Share

Deutsche Grammophon has a history of signing exclusive contracts with pianists who cultivate enigmatic reputations, such as Martha Argerich, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, Vladimir Horowitz, and now Grigory Sokolov. For years Sokolov has refused to affiliate himself with a record company, enter a recording studio, or play a concerto. For their first project, Sokolov sanctioned the release of his July 30, 2008 Salzburg Festival recital, and it reveals the pianist's extraordinary finesse in music of Mozart and Chopin.

Mozart: Piano Sonata in F major, K 280 (21:48) by pianist Grigory Sokolov from The Salzburg Recital on Deutsche Grammophon is the WFMT: Chicago - New Release of the Week
