Something a little different today, courtesy of Israeli concert pianist Boris Giltburg. Boris won the Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition in Brussels in 2013, and is now busy forging a very successful career (read his blog here). This short film entitled Rachmaninov in an Ice Age, was shot in Denmark and is designed to generate greater interest in Classical music, by creating or suggesting a different perspective. Irrespective of whether it achieves its objective or not, you can enjoy Boris Giltburg’s account of Rachmaninov’s Prelude Op. 23 No. 7 in C minor by clicking on the link below:
I interviewed Boris last year and you can watch here:
This interview is one of a whole series where I chat to established concert pianists; it’s called the Classical Conversations Series.
