GRIGORY SOKOLOV - PIANIST

Jumbo autographed 8.25 x 12 photograph of the great Russian pianist in recital.

Sokolov, 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.

A most unusual photograph of the man who many consider to be the greatest living pianist!
