Grigory Sokolov

The traditional October concerto with a master.

Grigory Sokolov is among those exclusive soloists who elevate music to unimagined heights every time, managing to surprise even the choosiest of audiences. With only two exceptions, he has guest-performed at Konserthuset each year since 2004 in an annual October concert.

Every concert with Sokolov is unique in its own way, for while his technique is utterly peerless, he rarely adheres to a template for piano virtuosos. His interpretations are deeply personal.

The music by Beethoven and Brahms belongs of course to Grigory Sokolov’s recurring interests, but for the first time he now focuses on English baroque music by Henry Purcell, playing works for keyboard originally written for the cembalo. 

The last time Grigory Sokolov visited us, in October 2021, there wore no less than six encores. Yes, it tends to be like that when Sokolov plays his annual concert at Konserthuset Stockholm.
