The cult pianist returns for his annual October concert.
Sunday 25 October 2020 19.00Ends approximately 21.00
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, and at his most recent visit in autumn 2019, he enchanted the audience with music by Mozart and Brahms during the regular programme, which he followed up with a string of encore pieces by Chopin, Schubert, Rachmaninoff and Brahms.
He often chooses the repertoire just before the performance. So we do not yet know what he will play at his next concert, but whatever he chooses, we know that once again, he will astound us all with his rare ability to bring new dimensions out of the music.
