Emil Gilels was one of the first Soviet musicians to be allowed to perform regularly in the west after the second world war, and made the first of 15 tours of the US in 1955. This recital was given in the Seattle Opera House in December 1964. It was recorded privately and is now released in full on disc for the first time, marking the centenary of the pianist’s birth later this month.
This recording reproduces an Emil Gilels concert given in Seattle in December of 1964, and it captures the pianist's tremendous energy and the energy of the audience's response as well. The Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 21 in C major, Op. 53 ("Waldstein") was one of Gilels' trademarks. You might want this release just for the performance of that work alone, with its surging double-octave scales in the finale letting the audience know that it's in for something special
