Anyone get the first DG release by Sokolov? I hear there are sound issues with it.

Another DG release is due out soon for Sokolov.

Yes.  Sound is fine for a live recital.

I ignored the first because the main bulk of that one was the Chopin Preludes I already have an older recordings of on op.111/Naive. I might get the new one eventually because his 80s recording of LvB's op.106 is virtually unavailable (or goes for around 40 EUR on ebay).

Against the drums of dawn.

Yes, I thought that was a poor choice for his first DG release.

The Schubert has me very interested.

I have his Schubert on Naive and am not that fussed with it.

There are a number of live recordings up on YouTube of Sokolov playing Byrd and Couperin. I find these performances of baroque repertoire by Sokolov mesmerizing.
