Pianist Boris Giltburg's live LvB concerto cycle

Post by Rach3 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 1:04 pm

Pianist Boris Giltburg and the Brussels Philharmonic under Thierry Fischer present the Beethoven piano concertos live from RTBF,Flagey starting Feb.13 with Nos. 2 and 1. Podcast here :

I listen to these 2 primarily for their slow movs., but also imagining the impacts of the works and Beethoven’s playing at the time.Interesting how “brief” the slow movs. of 4,5 seem in comparison to the slow.movs.of Nos.1,2. Giltburg very fine here throughout both concertos.

Podcast of Nos.3,4 played Feb.14 will probably be posted Monday, Feb.15 ; I have not heard the performances , yet. No.5 will apparently be played Feb.15 , and I suspect posted Feb.16.

Indeed, Giltburg, an exciting pianist. His Naxos (and an Orchid) CDs are worth every penny! His Rachmaninoff playing is especially noteworthy.

rubbed his name off the piano. [Speaking about pianist &*$#@+#]
