Boris Giltburg

piano

Brahms

7 Fantasias Op. 116

Shostakovich

String Quartet No. 8 in C minor Op. 110 arr. Boris Giltburg

Rachmaninoff

Etudes-tableaux Op. 39

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 Etudes-tableaux (picture studies) Op.39 by Rachmaninoff.

The programme also features Giltburg's own much-acclaimed transcription for piano of Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 8. The work contains ferocious emotion and many autobiographical elements.

The concert opens with Brahms's rich-hued Fantasias Op.116.
