A specialist of the German repertoire and master of the miniature form, the great Russian pianist Emil Gilels performed an all German-Austrian program at the Carinthian Summer Festival in 1971.
Emil Gilels, universally acclaimed for his breathtaking performances of the most demanding pieces of piano literature, delivers a virtuosic, emotionally charged rendering of these works.
One can listen to Gilels’s Beethoven for hours on end without wishing a single passage to be differently phrased or moulded.” Sunday Times
