Boris Giltburg, piano
With his vital blend of virtuosity and musical gravitas, Boris Giltburg has emerged as one of the most poetic and insightful artists of his generation. The Israeli pianist's Wigmore Hall recital opens with Busoni's richly imagined transcription of one of the most familiar of all Baroque compositions, and includes Brahms's symphonic First Piano Sonata.
