Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Boris Giltburg sees Rachamninov's tudes-tableaux Op. 39 as cinematic short-stories or colorful tone paintings: captivating and meticulously crafted aural tapestries that lead us into fully believable worlds with their huge breadth of piano techniques and textures. The unashamedly beautiful Moments musicaux contrast in being concentrated explorations of a single ideas or moods, from heart-aching struggle and pain towards light and genuine joy. Rachmaninov is shown here as a master of the short-form genre, these collections providing us with some of his best and most memorable music.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2016
[Giltburg] is that genuine rarity: a pianist whose Rachmaninov is entirely idiomatic yet intensely personal in a way that yields fresh perspectives on this well traversed repertory...His originality stems from a convergence of heart and mind, served by immaculate technique and motivated by a deep and abiding love for one of the 20th century's greatest composer-pianists.

The Observer, 5th June 2016
Each of the nine jewel-like miniatures in the cycle - mostly under five minutes in length - possesses a beguiling ambiguity, from brooding to pitch black, interrupted by flashes of light. Giltburg, a natural Rachmaninov interpreter, plays with technical fluidity and honed musicality.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2016
Giltburg has impressed with the intelligence and colouristic magnificence of his playing... [his] range of expression is wide.
