ArtistsEmil Gilels (piano)
USSR State Symphony Orchestra
Firma Melodiya continues a series of concert and studio recordings of one of the greatest pianists of the past era, Emil Gilels.
The musical world watched his career for half a century, from his first victory at the All-Union Competition of Performing Musicians in Moscow in 1933 to his last concert in Helsinki in 1985. His concerts in his home country and overseas, triumphant appearances at the world’s most prestigious concert venues featuring famous orchestras and outstanding conductors, numerous recordings made in the USSR and beyond – in his lifetime, Gilels was a living legend for hundreds of thousands of listeners and millions of record collectors.
As a pianist of an apparent romantic nature, Emil Gilels exerted himself to the limit when he played live. Although these recordings may seem technically imperfect at times, they are of special interest to music lovers and connoisseurs.
The piano concerto by Pyotr Tchaikovsky was recorded live at the Grand Hall of Moscow Conservatory in 1972 with the USSR State Orchestra conducted by Evgeny Svetlanov.
