Interesting group. Boris Giltburg is a pianist I've followed since his debut album on EMI with Moussorgsky's Pictures (the finest reading since Richter 1958 IMHO), and he has pleased me greatly in his solo albums, but poor choice of conductors marred his Rachmaninoff concerti on Naxos (don't bother). He's consistently very fine or great as a soloist, though, and I plan to get his Liszt ASAP.

As for Bartoli, she's a force of nature, and any new album by her is welcome indeed.

Thanks for the alert.......
