Gustav Holst

The Planets, op. 32

A pianist of exceptional sensitivity, Israel’s Boris Giltburg is one of the most fascinating concert pianists to make his Gulbenkian Music debut. After immersion in the works of Beethoven and Ravel, Giltburg has now dedicated himself to Rachmaninov, with Gramophone magazine writing that “his originality comes from a convergence of heart and mind, served by immaculate technique and motivated by a deep and abiding love for one of the greatest composer-pianists of the 20th century”. Under the direction of Giancarlo Guerrero, he will perform the famous Piano Concerto No. 2 by the Russian composer.
