One of today’s great pianists performs in a venue steeped in history: Grigory Sokolov, whose every recital is storied, at the Haydnsaal of Schloss Esterházy, Eisenstadt, where Joseph Haydn lived and worked for some three decades. Sokolov, “the best the classical world has to offer” (Der Spiegel), plays three Haydn sonatas, the Schubert Impromptus D 935, and a generous selection of encores, all in the spectacular hall in which Haydn himself would have performed countless times.
