For your viewing pleasure, Boris Giltburg gave a live recital today:
https://youtu.be/MqlUjHRWcrA

He was scheduled to play in Brussels at the BOZAR, instead he played the Chopin 4 Ballades at home. It was livestreamed, with very minor technical lapses and smudged notes that in no way detracted from his fiery and marvelous readings of these masterworks. Technical proficiency is never and end goal in live performances anyways, leave that to studio recordings. The 4th Ballade in particular was wonderfully played, dramatic, intense. He includes two encores, the Brahms Intermezzo in A major and the Rachmaninoff Prelude in g# minor. He seemed to be channeling Radu Lupu in the Brahms, just wonderful!


Estonia 190 #6209
Working on:
Bach's Goldbergs
Ravel: Une Barque sur l'Ocean
Rachmaninoff: Etude Tableaux Op. 39 No. 5 Eb minor

A terrific pianist! I think he is playing a Yamaha CF piano.

If it is the same piano he played a few weeks ago, it is a C2.

I thought only the CF series had the sharp edge at the top of the cheek block?
