Exquisite »piano exercise«: Baroque keyboard art meets Romanticism

Grigory Sokolov is a solitaire: for years, the pianist, who was born in 1950 in what was then Leningrad and had a meteoric career that began at the Tchaikovsky Competition, has performed exclusively as a soloist. The pianist, who only gives a few interviews, thinks intensively about his recital programs and only announces them late. His fan base eagerly awaits the recitals for months, which can range from Johann Sebastian Bach's compositions to Beethoven's piano sonatas and Schumann's Pieces right through to the 20th century. The veil has already been lifted for the upcoming recital: grand seigneur Sokolov juxtaposes Baroque keyboard artistry from Bach's multi-part »Clavier-Übung« with gems from the Romantic salons. In the second half, the audience can expect a selection of Chopin's Mazurkas and Schumann's »Waldszenen« op. 82.
