Winner of the 2013 Queen Elisabeth Competition, Boris Giltburg devoted the year 2020 to Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas, making audio and video recordings while blogging along the way. His performances revealed “fresh perspective on terrain one thought one knew, shedding new light in view of current realities, sincerely expressed with commitment and originality” (Gramophone). “Giltburg’s pianism is ideally suited to late Beethoven” (BBC Music).
The Moscow-born Israeli artist also “has the singing line, variety of touch and broad dynamic palette capable of great surges of energy that characterize the most gifted Rachmaninov pianists. He communicates with the audience effortlessly” (The Washington Post). In this repertoire, “His originality stems from a convergence of heart and mind, served by immaculate technique and motivated by a deep and abiding love for one of the 20th century’s greatest composer-pianists” (Gramophone).
