In this artfully filmed video, Boris Giltburg plays Rachmaninov’s complete work, Études-tableaux, Op. 39. It was unusually filmed in the middle of the night earlier this spring in London. Magic certainly happens in this recording, full of mood lighting and a single shot, hand-held camera.
Stewart French is the brilliant filmmaker behind the project who founded Fly On The Wall, a fascinating site you should check out highlighting musicians’ creative moments off-stage.
Boris recapped the whole experience in this piece on Gramophone.
