Playlist Mix Grigory Sokolov – Piano Recital (2020.12.12 Geneva, Palais des Nations, Human Rights Chamber)

Comment: “A true genius! I ordinarily prefer the harpsichord or clavichord for Barque keyboard music, but the incredible sensitivity and warmth with which Mr. Solokov plays makes hearing this music on the piano a sheer delight. His expressiveness is astounding. I never grow tired of listening to his interpretations of Rameau!”
