Notes and Editorial Reviews

Once again he shows himself the possessor of a massive and engulfing technique, this time supporting interpretations that glow with warmth and poetic commitment.

– Gramophone

His virtuosity is beyond question, but it is what he does with it that makes such a difference. There is emotional power here, together with apt tonal weight, but there is also a sensitive inwardness that reveals subtle expressive facets.

 Romantic Schumann by Boris Giltburg. April 22, 2015 By P. Bentham (Montreal, QC) See All My Reviews "Boris Giltburg shows his empathy with these tiny Schumann pieces in a performance that is both technically perfect and Romantic in style. As well as the better known 'Papillons' and 'Carnaval' he imparts his love of Schumann particularly well in the 'Davidsbundlertanze' which were written at the time of Schumann's final union with Clara. Giltburg gives each number an individuality that is most pleasing to the ear and full of the young Schumann's love for his wife and the keyboard." Report Abuse
