Moscow-born, Israeli pianist Boris Giltburg is praised around the world as a highly sensitive, insightful and compelling performer. He is at home in a broad repertoire and in recent years has become increasingly recognised as a leading interpreter of Rachmaninov. He regularly performs in the world's most prestigious concert halls and has worked with major conductors and orchestras worldwide.
Giltburg is an outstanding studio artist, for since his collaboration with Naxos Records in 2015, many of his recordings have been praised, earned him a nomination for a Classical Brits Critics' Award or won an Opus Klassik and a Gramophone Award for specific recordings.
Giltburg likes to involve the public in projects that go beyond the concert hall. For instance, in honour of Beethoven's birthday in 2020, he is making a recording of all 32 piano sonatas Beethovens and, during filming, vlogs about the whole process. His blog Classical music for all is aimed at a non-specialist audience and includes content from Gramophone, BBC Music Magazine, Guardian, Times and Fono Forum. During the lockdown period in spring 2020, Giltburg regularly streamed live performances and masterclasses from home. To this day, these streams have received over a million views.
During two festival weekends at Flagey, together with Boris Giltburg, we will be highlighting Rachmaninov’s four piano concertos, each accompanied by a piece from a composer who shared a special connection with him.
