(b 1984 )

The pianist Boris Giltburg was born in 1984 in Moscow and has lived in Tel Aviv since early childhood. He began lessons with his mother at the age of five and went on to study with Arie Vardi. In 2013 he took first prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition, catapulting his career to a new level.

He has appeared with many leading orchestras such as the Philharmonia Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic, DSO Berlin, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, Danish Radio Symphony, St Petersburg Philharmonic, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and the Baltimore Symphony.

He made his BBC Proms début in 2010 and has toured yearly to South America and China. He has played recitals in leading venues such as the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Tokyo Toppan Hall, Carnegie Hall, London Southbank Centre, Bozar, Louvre, the Elbphilharmonie and Amsterdam Concertgebouw.

In 2014 Giltburg began a long-term recording plan with Naxos, releasing solo works by Schumann (8.573399) and Beethoven (8.573400) to critical acclaim. His solo Rachmaninov recording (8.573469) was Gramophone’s CD of the Month in June 2016, and most recently Giltburg’s first concerto CD (8.573666) won a Diapason d’Or for his account of the Shostakovich concertos with Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, coupled with his own arrangement of Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 8. His 2012 Orchid release of the Prokofiev Sonatas was shortlisted for the critics’ award at the Classical Brits, and was closely followed by a Romantic sonatas disc (Rachmaninov, Liszt, Grieg).

Giltburg is an avid amateur photographer and blogger, writing about classical music for a non-specialist audience.
