The renowned Israeli pianist, Giltburg, captivated audiences with a diverse repertoire, performing a total of 15 celebrated compositions by renowned artists such as Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, and Stravinsky. What made the two-hour concert even more memorable was his inclusion of the Vietnamese piece, “Trống cơm” (Rice Drum) by Dang Huu Phuc.

Post-performance, Giltburg connected with his Vietnamese fans, signing autographs and sharing his appreciation for their culture and history, which he had learned about through the media. He expressed how Vietnamese music invigorated him with its unique energy.

At 40 years old, Giltburg, a native of Russia, has established himself as a brilliant and inspiring concert pianist. His career soared after winning the Queen Elizabeth International Music Competition in 2013, leading to performances at iconic venues worldwide. These include the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Carnegie Hall, Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, Wiener Konzerthaus, and the Southbank Centre, among others.

Giltburg’s collaborations are equally impressive, having worked with prestigious orchestras and conductors on a global scale. He has graced the stage with the Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Czech Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, Dresden Philharmonic, NHK Symphony, and Santa Cecilia di Roma, to name a few. His presence at the BBC Proms further solidified his reputation as a pianist of exceptional talent and versatility.
