About

Emil Gilels (1916-1985) was born in Odessa, Ukraine. At the age of 16 he won the first All-Union Piano Competition. Four years later he achieved the first awards at international competitions. He came to an arrangement with the Soviet regime. From 1951 onwards, the Soviet authorities allowed Gilels to perform in the West and thus provide an external source of revenue for his country. The first tour of the USA took place in 1955, followed by recording contracts with labels in the West.

The Emil Gilels Edition Volume 1 (Profil Edition GŁnter Hanssler PH17065) contained just about all the pre-war recordings made by this exceptional pianist between 1935 and 1941. This 15-CD edition, Volume 2, is dedicated exclusively to Russian/Soviet composers in recordings made between 1940 and 1963.

Fans of Tchaikovsky and piano music in general will be excited at the opportunity to compare the two versions of the famous First Piano Concerto - first the "pure" Soviet one featuring the Radio Symphony Orchestra of the USSR under Konstantin Ivanov, recorded in Moscow in 1951, and then the famous "American" one of 1955 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under the baton of its Hungarian taskmaster Fritz Reiner.
