Colossus, extraordinary being, eccentric celebrity, titan, living legend. There are no half-measures when it comes to the labels applied to Grigory Sokolov in the press or after his performances which are nothing less than events. These desperate attempts to describe a contemporary performer who defies classification are doomed to failure. How can you describe the completely unique elements which this genius detects in each note?
