Image Piano Concerto No. 2
Gabriela Montero's debut orchestral recording features the world premiere of her first formal composition, Ex Patria, as well as her first concerto recording, Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2. Montero is a passionate advocate for the people of her native Venezuela and a vocal opponent to its brutal Chavist government. It was here that she found her inspiration as she set down to write her Opus 1. The album marks an important point in the evolution of Montero's career. Long acclaimed as a pianist and for her thrilling improvisations, Montero now takes her place amongst and pays homage to the great tradition of composer/performers, of which Rachmaninov is one of the most enduring exponents.

Jiyoon Lee was joint first prize winner of the 2016 Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition, with jury President Nikolaj Znaider exclaiming that ‘her playing was immediately a breath of fresh air…she is a terrific violinist and I can see her going very far…’ Such praise has marked Jiyoon out as a genuine talent to watch, already being engaged as soloist with the Swedish Chamber, Seoul Philharmonic and Philharmonia orchestras. This, her debut recording, brings the much loved violin concerto of Erich Korngold together with the lesser known, highly demanding work of Carl Nielsen. It was Jiyoon’s interpretation of the latter which led Znaider to continue ‘She has lightness in her playing and yet she is a musician who takes very seriously her craft.’

This Orchid album is a collection of short pieces by composers who were directly influenced by Jazz.

Starting and finishing the record will be George Gershwin, the most successful of all those who attempted to notate jazz. These wonderful transcriptions of a suite from Porgy and Bess as well as the Preludes for piano, made for violin by the legendary Jascha Heifetz, have become staples of the violin repertoire.
Also featured on the album will be the two best known of all French composers, Debussy and Ravel. The latter in particular was a life-long lover of jazz, and titled the middle movement of his violin sonata 'Blues'.

Back to America and there will be Scott Joplin, Aaron Copland, and finally Wayne Marshall will be multi-tasking in the Sonata for violin with accompaniment of piano and drum (1 player) by the self-proclaimed 'bad boy of music', George Antheil.

Image War Sonatas (The)
5/5 i DN

"Till skillnad från kollegan Dmitrij Sjostakovitj nådde Sergej Prokofjev som längst och djupast i pianosonaterna, snarare än i stråkkvartetterna och symfonierna. Främst gäller det den så kallade krigstrilogin: sonaterna nr 6, 7, 8. Verken finns i fina inspelningar spridda på skilda håll - främst bör Richters, Gilels och Bermans framhållas. Men vill man ha en strålande modern utgåva av samtliga sonaterna är unge Boris Giltburgs ett givet alternativ. Han spelar med kraft och skärpa i sjätte och sjunde sonaterna, men han har också en lyrisk finess som framför allt kommer till sin rätt i den åttonde sonaten. Allt som allt har han en formkänsla och gestaltningsförmåga utöver det vanliga. Definitivt ett stort löfte."
(Dagens Nyheter)

Boris Giltburg (piano)

Boris Giltburg was selected by the great Zubin Mehta as the winner of the first Pnina Salzman Prize in Israel 2011 and has won many other prestigious prizes, including the top prize and Audience Prize in the Santander International Piano Competition, and second prize and Best Classical Concerto in the Artur Rubinstein Competition.

An exceptionally busy and versatile performer, he recently replaced Denis Matsuev at one day's notice performing Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No.3 on tour in Germany.

This CD is the culmination of many months of constant performance and study of Prokofiev's War Sonatas, and the highly detailed and insightful booklet notes have also been written by Boris.

'It isn't every day young pianists are compared to the great Richter, but Boris Giltburg has been on more than one occasion. In a sense, you can hear why: his Chopin Ballades at the Wigmore sounded gloriously poetic and free as he pushed and pulled at their tempi. It was old-school, but magical and quite ravishing too.'
