Idéale audience

Grigory Sokolov at La Roque d'Anthéron Festival

Grigory Sokolov is considered one of the greatest living pianists. His unique personality and his technique have allowed him to draw from the concert grand an immense variety of sounds; he has an unlimited palette of colours, a spontaneous imagination and a magical control of line. His interpretations are poetic and highly individual and he has an unbelievably wide repertoire ranging from the 12th century music of Perotinus through to 20th century composers. For the third time, the master allowed Bruno Monsaingeon to recording his performance on an evening of August 2015, at the Grand Théâtre de Provence in Aix. In minimalist lighting it amplifies the mystery surrounding Sokolov. He gives a recital of works by Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, with many Chopin encores.
