Grigory Sokolov in recital Palais des Nations


Don't miss the great Grigory Sokolov—one of the most astonishingly brilliant, exacting pianists of the last century, and the youngest ever winner of the Tchaikovsky Competition, just 16 in 1966—in a solo recital at the Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations Room, part of the UN Palace of Nations in Geneva! The virtuoso puts on a riveting demonstration of the talent, rigor, and originality that have brought him renown from audiences—and fellow musicians—all over the world.
