About this Recording
Ein Leben für die Musik von Boris Giltburg
Boris Giltburg on Rachmaninov’s Études-Tableaux

RACHMANINOV, S.: Etudes-tableaux, Op. 39 / Moments Musicaux (Giltburg)

Pianist Boris Giltburg sees Rachmaninov’s Études-tableaux, Op. 39 as cinematic short stories or colourful tone paintings. In contrast, the unashamedly beautiful Moments musicaux are concentrated explorations of a single idea or mood, from struggle and pain towards light and genuine joy. In these collections, which contain some of the composer’s most affecting music, Rachmaninov shows himself to be a master of the meticulously crafted short-form genre.
