Boris Giltburg piano

Rachmaninov Sonata no.1 in D minor
Rachmaninov Preludes op.32


Extolled worldwide as a foremost interpreter of Rachmaninov’s music, Boris Giltburg offers Ryedale audiences a chance to hear his rarely performed first sonata, a work of stupefying virtuosity that evokes a titanic battle between good and evil (containing a wonderful tune with pre-echoes of Paul McCartney’s Yesterday), before turning to the much-loved Preludes that Rachmaninov composed in a mood of creative elation.

‘An artist of great stature and a pianist of the highest calibre, his presence is a guarantee of a vibrant musical experience… reminiscent of the young Ashkenazy and a colossus amongst the pianists of today’ Scherzo
