“An artist of great stature and a pianist of the highest calibre, his presence is a guarantee of a vibrant musical experience…“ Scherzo Magazine June 2022

★★★★★ BBC Music Magazine

Moscow-born Israeli pianist Boris Giltburg is lauded across the globe as a deeply sensitive, insightful and compelling interpreter. Critics have praised his “singing line, variety of touch and broad dynamic palette capable of great surges of energy” (Washington Post) as well as his impassioned, narrative-driven approach to performance. In 2020, Giltburg recorded and filmed all 32 of Beethoven’s sonatas, winning critics and listeners rave reviews with his superb artistry.

Giltburg regularly plays recitals in the world’s most prestigious halls, including the Concertgebouw, the Carnegie Hall, Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, Wiener Konzerthaus and Southbank Centre. He also constantly works with the top orchestras and the conductors across the world.

Giltburg’s numerous recordings have won the pianist several prestigious awards, including the Opus Klassik award for Best Soloist Recording, a Diapason d’Or and a Gramophone Award.

In his upcoming Hong Kong recital, Giltburg will be bringing his signature Beethoven, Schumann’s colourful Carnaval, and two dazzling Chopin Ballades.
