Born in 1984 in Moscow, Boris Giltburg moved to Tel Aviv at an early age, studying with his mother and then with Arie Vardi. In 2013 he won first prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition, catapulting his career to a new level. In 2015 he began a long-term recording plan with Naxos. Having taken the second (and audience) prize at the Rubinstein Competition in 2011, Giltburg has appeared with many leading orchestras such as the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic, DSO Berlin, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Swedish Radio Symphony, the Danish Radio Symphony, the St Petersburg Philharmonic and the Baltimore Symphony. He made his BBC Proms début in 2010 and has toured regularly in South America and China, and has also toured Germany with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse. He has played recitals in leading venues such as the Leipzig Gewandhaus, the Toppan Hall, Tokyo, Bozar, Brussels, the Southbank Centre, London, the Louvre, Paris, and the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam. Last season’s highlights included several appearances at Rotterdam De Doelen (beginning with a return to the Rotterdam Philharmonic under Jukka-Pekka Saraste), a début with the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra under Emmanuel Krivine, and chamber music with the Takács Quartet and the Pavel Haas Quartet. He was re-invited to the Seattle Symphony (Dausgaard), the Brussels Philharmonic (Denève), the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (Petrenko), and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (Prieto)—with whom he played seven concerts as part of their Rachmaninov series. Having initially appeared on the EMI début label some years ago, in 2012 Giltburg released an acclaimed recording of Prokofiev’s War Sonatas on Orchid Classics, earning him a place on the shortlist for the critics’ award at the Classical Brits. His Romantic Sonatas disc (Rachmaninov, Liszt, Grieg) followed in 2013. His first solo releases on Naxos (Schumann and Beethoven) prompted enthusiastic reviews, and his latest Rachmaninov recording was named Gramophone’s Disc of the Month. Boris Giltburg is an avid amateur photographer and blogger, writing about classical music for a non-specialist audience. He is represented by Intermusica.
