Mozart Piano Concerto 23/ Rachmaninov Conc 3

Grigory Sokolov
Description:
This release – set for March 2017 – is a piece of history: it is a combination of unreleased and historic audio and visuals. It allows a unique view of the enigmatic maestro Grigory Sokolov’s life because it offers an opportunity to hear authentic performances from over ten and even twenty years ago accompanied by a brand-new film by Nadya Zhdanova.

On Sokolov’s performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto K 488, the Salzburger Nachrichten noted: “Such is his intensity that Sokolov sweeps everything and everyone along with him”. Similarly, The Times wrote that “Sokolov swept through the concerto like a hurricane” with Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto.

These historic performances will be published in combination with a unique documentary, which looks back on both Sokolov’s artistic and private biography. Whilst Sokolov is well known for being reclusive and rarely giving interviews, filmmaker Zhdanova achieved the impossible: she spoke with his friends and colleagues and eventually was allowed to use private material from Sokolov’s archives. Ultimately, Zhdanova discovered rare and unreleased video footage which offers an intimate insight into the life of Sokolov.
