Grigory Sokolov (b1950)

From the age of seven, Grigory Sokolov studied piano with Leah Zelikhman at the Leningrad Conservatory’s special school for children, and first performed in public at the age of twelve. He continued his studies with Moisei Khaifin at the Leningrad Conservatory; and having won first prize in the Russian National Competition at the age of fifteen, a year later, when only sixteen, he won the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition.

Political constraints kept Sokolov within the then USSR for a long time, although he did play in New York in the late 1960s; but latterly he has played in Europe, Japan and the United States to great acclaim, giving recitals at New York’s Carnegie Hall as well as the Musikverein in Vienna, in Rome, Berlin, Helsinki and Copenhagen. In 1999 Sokolov gave a recital at the Edinburgh Festival.

Sokolov has worked with many of the great orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, Concertgebouw, Leipzig Gewandhaus and the Philharmonia in London with such conductors as Neeme Järvi, Charles Dutoit, Kyrill Kondrashin, Yevgeny Svetlanov and Riccardo Chailly. He has a wide and interesting repertoire which ranges from the keyboard music of Byrd and Rameau (and even Palestrina) through Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Brahms, Ravel, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev and Scriabin.
