Born in 1984 in Moscow, virtuoso pianist Boris Giltburg moved to Tel Aviv at an early age, studying music with his mother and then with Arie Vardi. After his BBC Proms début in 2010, he won first prize at the 2013 Queen Elisabeth Competition, catapulting him to international fame. Giltburg tours extensively and has appeared with many world renowned symphonies such as the Philharmonia Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic, DSO Berlin, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Swedish Radio Symphony, the Danish Radio Symphony, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Nashville Symphony and the Baltimore Symphony.
Boris Giltburg’s first two solo releases on Naxos, featuring works of Schumann and Beethoven, prompted enthusiastic reviews and critical acclaim. A favorite of music critics, the latest Rachmaninov recording was named Gramophone’s Disc of the Month. Boris Giltburg is also an avid amateur photographer and blogger, writing accessible guides about classical music for a non-specialist audience.
