Notes & Reviews:

Prokofiev's challenging "War Sonatas," the name given to the Piano Sonatas Nos. 6, 7, &8, are deftly and smoothly performed here by rising star Boris Giltburg. Giltburg, winner of the Pinan Salzman Prize, Santander Competition, and Rubenstein Competition, is a formidable talent who has been described as "old-school but magical and quite ravishing." He also been famously compared to past masters like Richter and Rachmaninov.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
He made his debut with the Israel Philharmonic in 2005 at the age of 21 and has won prizes in many international competitions. This recording is part of his prize in the 13th Arthur Rubinstein Piano Masters Competition. His range of expression, technical security, and interpretive prowess are all fully evident here. His musical insight and writing skills are shown in his booklet notes. The recorded sound is top-notch. If this kind of music is something you enjoy, you need to get this.
