Notes & Reviews:

Melodiya presents concert recordings of J.S. Bach's compositions performed by Grigory Sokolov, arguably the most intellectual of all modern Russian pianists. At the age of 16, he became a winner of the Third International Tchaikovsky Competition and has been an active concert performer for more than 40 years. Although he is not a public figure, those who have heard him in concert or on record will never be able to forget his playing.

Concert recordings of J.S. Bach's compositions performed by Grigory Sokolov, arguably the most intellectual of all modern Russian pianists. The Goldberg Variations, Bach's most complicated cycle from a performing point of view, was recorded by Grigory Sokolov in concert in 1982. This double-disc offering also includes the C minor Partita and the English Suite in A minor.
