Emil Gilels (1916-85), unlike his friend and compatriot Sviatoslav Richter, enjoyed playing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.2, Op. 44 just as much as the celebrated Concerto No.1, Op. 23. Their playing style was very different. Both equally virtuoso, Richter’s flashes of emotivity and virtuosity contrast with Gilels’ natural
restraint and impressive legato. The two scores here, which met with surprisingly contrasting acclaim, appear only rarely together.

Emil Gilels (1916-85) jouait aussi volontiers le 2e Concerto pour piano op.44 de Tchaïkovski que le célébrissime 1er op.23, contrairement à son compatriote et ami, Svjatoslav Sviatoslav Richter. Leur style différait fortement. Aux imprévisibles traits d’humeur et de virtuosité de ce dernier, il oppose un style naturellement sobre, à l’impressionnant legato, mais tout aussi virtuose. Un trop rare couplage de ces deux partitions à la gloire étonnamment contrastée.
