Notes & Reviews:

Emil Gilels was a highly awarded pianist from Odessa, Ukraine. He is well known for a virtuosity, lucidity, and purity of his pianism that captured the very essence of what he was performing. This collection covers many aspects of his art, encompassing works in which the poetry of the music is tangible and others where his incredible dexterity is matched by fluency to yield performances of breathtaking brilliance. His career was brutally cut short by a heart attack in Moscow just before his 69th birthday.
