Boris Giltburg, piano

Part of Classical Season 2017/18

The Israeli pianist Boris Giltburg first rose to prominence while still in his teens.

After he won first prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition, Brussels, in 2013, his career became stratospheric.

He has been particularly praised for his performances of Russian music and tonight's concert is a special opportunity to hear him in the immensely colourful, intense and poetic set of Études-tableaux (picture studies), Op.39 by Rachmaninov.

The programme also features a selection from Liszt's Transcendental Studies, headily romantic pieces that display the pianist's virtuoso capabilities to the maximum.
