Boris Giltburg returns to the city where it all began for him. In 2013, the Russian-Israeli pianist was given a standing ovation in the finale of the Queen Elisabeth Competition. His blazing performance of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 won him first prize. Giltburg feels closely connected to the music of his homeland: “For me, Russian music is addictively rich, deep and utterly authentic.” With the Pavel Haas Quartet, the pianist performs a full programme of Shostakovich.
