Misha Galant – Virtually Gilmore Premiere
Program Starts In:
Misha Galant’s performance at a reception held at Steinway Hall in New York on October 2, 2019 to announce his selection as a 2020 Gilmore Young Artist. A highlight of the program will be Rachmaninoff’s Etudes-Tableaux, Op. 39, Nos. 4, 5, and 9. The composer premiered all nine etudes of Op. 39 in St. Petersburg in February 1917; shortly afterward he left Russia – at age 44 – to establish a new life. He never returned.
(Due to quarantine related technical difficulties, Mr. Galant’s live stream performance from home wasn’t possible. In its place we are premiering this archived performance.)
Prelude and Fugue in D Minor, Op. 87, No. 24
Lilacs, Op. 21, No. 5
Études-tableaux, Op. 39, Nos. 4, 5, 9
