About

The most comprehensive tribute to Vladimir Sofronitsky, one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. He was regarded by Gilels and Richter as their master.

He described recordings as “corpses”, therefore almost all these astonishing documents have been captured live, sometimes without the maestro’s knowledge and they give testimony to Sofronitsky’s incredible piano poetry and artistry

Sofronitsky is possibly the most authentic interpreter of Scriabin’s works.

Maria Yudina wrote: “The memory of Sofronitsky, his art, his suffering image, his restlessness during his life, his humble death belong to all of us forever.”
