PIANO RECITAL by Boris Giltburg
…ONE OF THE MOST FULLY-ROUNDED PIANISTS OF TODAY…
FRÉDÉRIC CHOPIN Ballades Nos 1–4
SERGEI PROKOFIEV Suite: Romeo and Juliet
MAURICE RAVEL Gaspard de la Nuit
Described as “one of the most fully-rounded pianists of today”, Israeli pianist Boris Giltburg enjoys a career that has taken him to all the great musical centres of the world. In this recital programme he contrasts the deep poetry and romanticism of Chopin’s Ballades with Prokofiev’s colourful suite from his ballet Romeo and Juliet and the brilliantly impressionistic Gaspard de la Nuit by Ravel.Book Tickets

Following the huge success of this new initiative in 2021/22, we once again bring some of the world’s greatest pianists to The Venue, Leeds Conservatoire across the autumn and winter months. They are a truly international group, from Argentina, France, Russia, Kazakhstan, Israel and Georgia, and the repertoire is a very rich mix of great masterpieces, with threads of Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, and Liszt running through the season. Three of the musicians featured are at the forefront of a very exciting younger generation of pianists, including the 2021 competition winner Alim Beisembayev.
We are delighted once again to partner with Leeds International Concert Season and Leeds Conservatoire to bring you what we know will be a veritable treasure trove of fantastic pianism.
