purity and fire

I have seen some of this program when it was briefly on youtube, and I cannot imagine a greater perfection in music than Sokolov’s meticulous yet honest and piercing tonal production that seems to marry Michelangeli’s technical unassailability with Richter’s utter artistic transcendence. Of course, “Sokolov” is already an adjective one could use to help describe brilliant young pianists, but he also deserves the continual association with all-time greats. And a bonus that some may find to only having audio - sans video - is that one need not be distracted by his eccentricities (this sentence does not represent my opinion)!
