Born in Leningrad in 1950, Sokolov attended a special music school before being admitted to the Leningrad Conservatory in 1960. When he was 16, a jury headed by Emil Gilels unanimously declared him the winner of the Third International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition, a triumph that launched his performance career. He regularly performs concerts in the world's most prestigious concert halls, including Vienna's Musikverein, the Berliner Philharmonie, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw and New York's Carnegie Hall. His extensive repertoire ranges from Bach to Schönberg, and the seriousness and originality of his musical interpretation and the precision of his performance style captivate both audiences and critics wherever he plays. His style is distinctive in that he makes very little use of the pedals, while his keyboard technique is of the highest order, allowing him to elicit an immense variety of sounds from the piano. His poetic playing abounds in unique solutions, making even the most familiar pieces seem astonishingly fresh when he performs them.

 

Program and cast

Palace of Arts Müpa Budapest

When Müpa Budapest, Hungary and its capital's new cultural hub, opened in 2005, it was built to represent more than 100 years of Hungarian cultural history. As a conglomeration of cultural venues, the building has no precedent in 20th century Hungarian architecture and has no peers in the whole of Central Europe.


The creators of this ambitious project, the Trigránit Development Corporation, prime contractor Arcadom Construction and the Zoboki, Demeter and Partners Architectural Office, were driven by the desire to create a new European cultural citadel as part of the new Millennium City Centre complex along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Danube waterfront. The result is a facility whose construction quality, appearance, functionality and 21st century technological infrastructure makes it ideally suited to productions of the highest standard. The building is also highly versatile and equipped to host performances of any genre and almost any scale.
