I don't know how this pianist could have evaded me!
Seymour Bernstein shot off an email to his LIST about the Champs Elysee recital and it was heaven from there. Three listenings and going strong. For me this is gold standard music-making! Wish he would come to the states.. seems to be in love with European audiences.

It's Grigory, not Georgy. You might want to correct the thread title. One of my piano deities. I'd travel to Europe to hear him live.

I'd go to the polar ice caps to hear him.. if he was, of course playing there. He should have 3 million hits on that Champs Elysee recital...

Sokolov doesn't seem to be of this world.

probably better that way.. He's in a universe of beauty and we are fortunate to inhabit with him, of our own volition.
