It is always a pleasure to welcome back to our stage performers like Boris Giltburg, whose careers took off before our very eyes, during the Queen Elisabeth Competition. The Israeli pianist's relationship with BOZAR is further strengthened this season, thanks the "portrait" we are dedicating to him. This first recital is focused on 20th century Russian composers, including the young performer's solo piano arrangement of Shostakovich's String Quartet N° 8.
