These rare live broadcast recordings make their first appearance on CD. The Beethoven Piano Concerto No.4 from the 1966 Edinburgh Festival together with the distinguished accompaniment of Sir John Barbirolli produce a performance of great poetry, imagination and power. The Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.2 in the abridged version by Siloti from 1959 brings out Gilels’ incredible technique and virtuosity (the New York Times dubbed him ’the little giant’) with Kirill Kondrashin transforming the London Philharmonic into an authentic Russian sounding orchestra. ICA’s Ambient Mastering recreates the atmosphere of both concerts perfectly.

                Classical CD of the Week

“ [Gilels] was never a pianist to flaunt any degree of flamboyance, but the quality that comes through in this performance is the focus and seriousness of his interpretation, his chamber music-like relationship with the orchestra, the gleaming tone that he could elicit from the keyboard, and the range of emotion that he could describe, while always keeping the music in perspective.”

Daily Telegraph - September  2011

“The Tchaikovsky Second Piano Concerto is given an extraordinary performance: Gilels is on commanding form, and the partnership with the LPO under Kirill Kondrashin produces fiery results...Gilels’s pianism is engrossing and he is matched by Kondrashin’s conducting.”
