For more than 20 years, Grigory Sokolov refused to make any CD recordings whatsoever. For his first release (2014) after this long period, the Russian pianist chose a concert he gave at the Salzburg Festival in 2008: his album The Salzburg Recital featuring works by Mozart and Chopin was celebrated by critics worldwide and won a coveted ECHO Classic Award. Only one year later, his new album follows: Sokolov: Schubert/Beethoven, released on January 15, 2016 by Deutsche Grammphon as part of the series Salzburg Festival Documents.

Four world religions – Judaism, Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism – were illuminated musically by the Ouverture spirituelle during the past four years.

The conviction that no instrument is better able than the human voice to adequately express the effect of the Holy Spirit manifests itself in sumptuous choral works, which are still performed from Africa to Asia.
