Boris Giltburg

Boris Giltburg (piano) performs at LSO St Luke's in London. Scriabin: Piano Sonata No 3. Rachmaninov: Moments Musicaux, Op 16 Nos 1, 2 and 4. Prokofiev: Piano Sonata No 7.

Boris Giltburg takes to the stage of LSO St Luke's in the third part of the series, Russian Romantics. He performs Scriabin's Sonata No.3, a sonata which Scriabin described as 'gothic', and a selection from Rachmaninov's heartfelt Moments Musicaux. Boris Giltburg ends his recital with a solemn piece that Prokofiev said was a truer expression of his feelings after being forced to compose the cheery Zdravitsa for Stalin's 60th birthday.
