Boris Giltburg takes to the stage of LSO St Luke's in the third part of the series, Russian Romantics. He performs Scriabin's Sonata No.3, a sonata which Scriabin described as 'gothic', and a selection from Rachmaninov's heartfelt Moments Musicaux. Boris Giltburg ends his recital with a solemn piece that Prokofiev said was a truer expression of his feelings after being forced to compose the cheery Zdravitsa for Stalin's 60th birthday.

The young virtuosic Russian pianist, Denis Kozhukhin, closes this week's series of Russian Romantics from LSO St Luke's in London. He pairs Prokofiev's 9th Sonata with a Prelude and Fugue by Taneyev, the very professor who suggested that Prokofiev should start lessons in piano and composition. The series is brought to a sparkling conclusion in Rachmaninov's Variations on a Theme of Corelli, a Romantic take on a Baroque classic.
