Music Millennium

Rachmaninoff's 'Piano Concerto No. 3' is a complex, epic narrative that moves from a simple opening melody to the triumphant apotheosis at it's conclusion. The composer ingeniously links motifs, melodies and at times whole sections between the movements, unifying the concerto into a single overarching storyline. In the 'Variations on a Theme of Correlli,' Rachmaninoff reworks the original theme using his unique harmonic language until there is no trace left of it's Baroque or Renaissance origins. 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. His previous solo Rachmaninoff recording was named Gramophone album of the month in June 2016, and more recently his first concerto album won a Diapason d'or for his account of the Shostakovich concertos.
