‘His playing, between spiritual tranquillity and deep immersion, is utterly moving,’ to paraphrase the Washington Post about pianist Boris Giltburg. ‘This recording belongs in every classical collection,’ according to the Gramophone Top 10 of Rachmaninoff recordings about Giltburg’s performance of Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. This concert programme will take you from those subtle French jewels like Ravel’s favourite Pavane to the Russian folklore of Khachaturian’s exuberant ballet suite Gayane with that uplifting Lezginka and the Sabre Dance.
To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!
