Tchaikovsky: Marche slave
Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 1
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5

Known for his “intuitive, powerful performances” (Daily Telegraph), Israeli pianist and 2013 Queen Elisabeth Competition Winner Boris Giltburg performs Rachmaninoff’s First Piano Concerto. Marin Alsop leads this sumptuous Russian program also featuring Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony, in which the composer walks a tightrope between his own artistic statement and Stalin’s socialist realism.
