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.
