Boris Giltburg with works by Rachmaninov: 10 Preludes op.23; Prokofiev: Piano Sonata No.8 in B flat op.84; and Ravel: La valse.
\nThe first half of the programme is devoted to Rachmaninov's op.23 Preludes, short pieces that are as tender, dazzling and dramatic as only Russian romanticism can be. Prokofiev's Sonata No.8 is the third of the composer's so-called 'War' sonatas, reflecting the tense atmosphere of days of World War Two. To close, Giltburg performs Ravel's dark-hued virtuoso showpiece 'La Valse'.
