Boris Giltburg Plays Rachmaninoff
Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No 2 in C minor, Op 18 (34:49)
Boris Giltburg, piano; Royal Scottish National Orchestra / Carlos Miguel Prieto
Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 is one of the most passionate and beloved concertos in the repertoire, its lyricism and virtuosity charting a trajectory from darkness through idyll to dazzling triumph. The Études-tableaux, Op 33, are richly characterized musical evocations, expressive and often explosive, that reflect a more angular, modern aspect.
