Emil Gilels in a pure Beethoven's concert of 1980, from the late phase of his artistic development. A native of Odessa, he trained with Heinrich Neuhaus in Moscow and was even in his youth an exceptional pianist pushing the boundaries of virtuosity. Over the last two decades of his career, he developed into a more thoughtful artist. This internalization is experienced in this late concert, performed five years before his death. An evening of the highest artistic intensity, a mature Beethoven interpretation.
