GRIGORY SOKOLOV - PIANIST

Scarce autographed and inscribed 7 x 9 photograph by the Russian pianist at the time of his American debut, February 2, 1969. The photograph is dedicated to the late, colorful Philadelphia based concert promoter Moe Septee.

Sokolov (1950- ) a pupil of Leah Zelikhman and Moisey Khalfin at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, was also a mentee of Emil Gilels. He made his debut in 1962, won the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1966 and made his American debut at the age of 19 in 1969, at the time this photograph was signed. Considered by some to be the greatest living pianist, he has a few eccentricities, today he only plays recitals, he uses the pedal sparingly, emphasizes his fingering technique, has a somewhat limited repertory and he only records live performances.

Scarce this period!
