Piano concert: Liszt´s Transcendental Études and Rachmaninov´s Thirteen Preludes

A must on the schedule of this year’s Dvořák Prague Festival for all piano fans: The Israeli pianist of Russian origin will present a complete performance of Liszt’s Transcendental Études, which are among the greatest challenges for performers in the worldwide piano literature.

Liszt’s monumental work demands not only extraordinary technical skill, but also the ability to convey the convincing expressive structure of the individual etudes, which are more like tone poems than merely virtuosic piano pieces.

A similarly challenging task is the cycle of Thirteen Preludes by Sergey Rachmaninoff, one of the greatest piano virtuosos in history and a composer who succeeded in his works at giving a uniquely exhaustive demonstration of the beauty of the piano’s sound.

Program: 

  • Franz Liszt: Transcendental Études, S. 139
  • Sergey Rachmaninov: Thirteen Preludes, Op. 32

Soloist:

Boris Giltburg - piano
