Notes & Reviews:

One of the best contemporary representatives of the St. Petersburg piano school, Grigory Sokolov is well known in Russia and beyond. A master of the now-rare "intellectual" pianism, Sokolov preferred live concerts to studio work. Most of his recordings have been made in concert, including those featured on this set. It reflects not only his repertoire predilection, but also the pianist's rise to the musical Olympus.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2013
Beethoven's Diabelli Variations can be a long haul, and Sokolov is in no hurry in the slower
