It’s strange that Sokolov’s new Brahms and Beethoven has attracted so little attention, I enjoyed the Brahms very much. It’s as if, in signing for DG, he has lost a part of his mystique.

I didn't get on with his rubato in the Brahms. Stephen Hough's new recording of op 116-119 seems to be superior.

Heard Sokolov play op 2/3 zillions of times ...

The Hough is indeed good, expressive with no sentimentality and attractively recorded too. Thanks for mentioning it.

He put himself in the same recording bucket as
La Wang, Lang van Bang, and Treif.
