Piano Concerto No. 3


Variations on a Theme of Corelli

Boris Giltburg, Piano
Royal Scottish National Orchestra / Carlos Miguel Prieto

Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 is a complex, epic narrative that moves from a simple opening melody to the triumphant apotheosis at its conclusion. The
composer ingeniously links motifs, melodies and at times whole sections between the movements, unifying the concerto into a single overarching storyline. In the
Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Rachmaninov reworks the original theme using his unique harmonic language until there is no trace left of its Baroque or Renaissance
origins.

The previous release of Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto (8573629) by Giltburg, the RSNO and Prieto was a Gramophone Choice and included in the
magazine’s Top 10 Rachmaninov recordings. Critic Geoffrey Norris wrote: “The fusion of freshness with generous spirit and soul lends an enthralling dynamism to
this familiar repertoire. Meanwhile American Record Guide wrote: “this is a very romantic performance and has to join the best ones on my shelf.”

8573469 contains Boris Giltburg’s performances of Rachmaninov’s Études-tableaux, Op. 39 and Moments musicaux, of which BBC Music Magazine wrote: “each note in a chord graded for colour and volume, giving a blended, multidimensional impression. If Rachmaninov envisaged landscapes, Giltburg turns them into sound-sculptures.” It also won an American Record Guide Critic’s Choice award and was a Gramophone Recording of the Month.

Giltburg’s Shostakovich Piano Concertos (8573666) disc was also superbly reviewed – ClassicsToday.com gave it a 10/10 rating adding “These are big, bold, in-your-face performances that find a wider range of expression in both works than you might have believed possible.”

Known for his charismatic conducting, dynamism and expressive interpretations, Carlos Miguel Prieto is one of Mexico’s leading conductors.
