Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Grigory Sokolov is regarded as one of the world's leading pianists and adored by his audience in sold-out concerts - dedicated to his art, and nothing else. His debut album on Deutsche Grammophon, "Salzburg Recital," was a huge success and is now followed by a remarkable recital of Schubert & Beethoven. This album was culled from concerts in Warsaw and Salzburg, which were celebrated by the media.

The greatest pianist alive today.
