Grigory Sokolov has gained an almost mythical status amongst music-lovers and pianophiles throughout the world. He is considered by many today to be the world's greatest living pianist. Ever since his first recital in Leningrad. He has amazed everyone again and again with the enormous breadth of his repertoire and his huge, almost physical musical strength. Grigory Sokolov was largely unknown in the West, however, until the late 1980's, but is now rightfully regarded as a giant of the piano. Sokolov's concerts are anticipated with eagerness where ever he travels. He's not been outside of Europe for several years now, preferring to tour Europe. His programmes change twice a year, Sokolov mining the music he plays for every jewel before he feels ready to consider a new work. Sokolov prefers his CD's to be recorded live is not surprising, since he likes to capture the sacred moments of a real, live concert and avoid the sterile atmosphere of a studio. Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 29 in B-flat major, Op. 106 (known as the Große Sonate für das Hammerklavier, or more simply as the Hammerklavier) is a piano sonata widely viewed as one of the most important works of the composer's third period and among the greatest piano sonatas. Completed in 1818, it is often considered to be Beethoven's most technically challenging piano composition and one of the most demanding solo works in the classical piano repertoire.

Experience Grigory Sokolov - „probably the best live pianist of our days“ (Berliner Morgenpost) - in a filmed concert praised to the skies by critics.

The completely sold out concert took place on 5 June 2013 in the Philaharmonie Berlin, which is known for its exquisite acoustics.

Acclaimed French film-maker Bruno Monsaingeon (Profile on IMDb) is well known for his documentaries about iconic pianists Glenn Gould (Glenn Gould - Hereafter), Sviatoslav Richter (Richter - The Enigma) and Mauricio Pollini (De main de maître ).

In the director's notes to this new Sokolov film, Monsaingeon writes:

“Sokolov himself believes that the concert represents the focal point of musical life and that everything else is artificial. As a result, he is not only reluctant to be recorded but also to be filmed.

In spite of this, we were able to overcome his reservations on this point of principle (…). The idea of filming a public recital was accepted a first time in 2002 (Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Paris) and the second time at the Berlin Philharmonie on 5 June 2013.

The filming was made live with 7 cameras, with no retakes and with nothing to detract from his total concentration, which is directed solely at the music.”
