The young Russian-Israeli pianist Boris Giltburg is bidding to step in as the inheritor of the long line of passionately Romantic Russian pianism, and from the evidence on this Naxos disc, where he's joined by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra under Carlos Miguel Prieto, he just may make it. This is a very fine performance of the Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18, an iconic work ever since it musically defined the 1945 British tearjerker Brief Encounter. Giltburg has the chops to handle the concerto's technical challenges, as great as those in any other work Rachmaninov wrote, and also to get beyond conservatory dryness and put across the emotion of the work, the sense Rachmaninov had of rediscovering a musical wellspring after a long, creatively fallow period. The program was not recorded at a stretch: the Études-tableaux, Op. 33, were recorded several months later, at a different location, but these works contrast fairly strongly with the concerto: they are indeed studies of a sort, and they're among the more modern works in the Rachmaninov oeuvre. There are flashier performances of these, but Giltburg is probing, not trying to be flashy. The two transcriptions at the end bring down the curtain on a satisfying performance of some familiar works.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.
