Image Études d'exécution transcendante
Boris Giltburg’s first Liszt recording for Naxos features the Études d’exécution transcendante which, with their extremes of expressive drama and technical virtuosity, enshrine the spirit of High Romanticism. Giltburg has also recorded another famous set of etudes for Naxos – the Rachmaninov Études-tableaux, Op. 39 (8.573469).

The previous concerto disc in this series was the Second Concerto on 8.573629 of which Gramophone wrote: ‘The fusion of freshness with generous spirit and soul lends an enthralling dynamism to this familiar repertoire. Boris Giltburg faithfully observes Rachmaninov’s marks of expression in the concerto and the Op 33 Etudes, but there is a fluid imagination at work here tied to an enquiring musical intelligence.’

Image Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2
Shostakovich’s two Piano Concertos span a period of almost thirty years. The youthful First Piano Concerto is a masterful example of eclecticism, its inscrutable humour and seriousness allied to virtuoso writing enhanced by the rôle for solo trumpet. Written as a birthday present for his son Maxim, the Second Piano Concerto is light-spirited with a hauntingly beautiful slow movement. With the permission of the composer’s family, Boris Giltburg has arranged the exceptionally dark, deeply personal and powerful String Quartet No. 8, thereby establishing a major Shostakovich solo piano composition.

Image Études-tableaux / Moments musicaux
Boris Giltburg, piano

Pianist Boris Giltburg sees Rachmaninov’s Études-tableaux, Op. 39 as cinematic short stories or colourful tone paintings. In contrast, the unashamedly beautiful Moments musicaux are concentrated explorations of a single idea or mood, from struggle and pain towards light and genuine joy. In these collections, which contain some of the composer’s most affecting music, Rachmaninov shows himself to be a master of the meticulously crafted short-form genre.
