Emil Gilels belongs to a select group of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. Born in Odessa in 1916, he began his studies at the age of 5, and gave his first public recital at the age of 13. Odessa and Moscow Conservatories followed, and unusually in 1936 he was allowed to perform outside the Soviet Union. His American debut was delayed by World War II, finally taking place in 1955 to great acclaim. His UK debut took place in 1953. Gilels gave the premiere of Prokofiev's 8th Sonata, of which he is the dedicatee

The collector who has heard the recordings of Gilels' superb performances of Beethoven's Sonatas for Deutsche Grammophon and of Gilels' superlative performances of Beethoven's Concertos with George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra? Certainly: Gilels was at the peak of his technical power when these recordings were made in the '60s, '70s, and '80s and the fact that they are live adds immeasurably to the immediacy of his overwhelming interpretations. But how about the casual listener who is merely looking for a compendium of Beethoven piano music?

London Philharmonic Orchestra. Recorded: 13 September 1966. Recording Venue: Edinburgh Festival, Usher Hall, Edinburgh, United Kingdom. I. Allegro brillante. II. Andante non troppo. The live recording of the Beethoven Piano Concerto N. from the 1966 Edinburgh Festival together with the distinguished accompaniment of Sir John Barbirolli produce a performance of great poetry, imagination and power. Gilels had a wonderful, discriminating ear and throughout the concerto brings a chamber music quality to his playing when the score demands.

Emil Grigoryevich Gilels (Ukrainian: Емі́ль Григо́рович Гі́лельс; 19 October 1916 – 14 October 1985) was a Soviet pianist. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest pianists of all time. Gilels was born to a Jewish family on 19 October 1916 (6 October, Old Style) in Odessa, Ukraine (then part of the Russian Empire) to Esfir and Grigory Gilels. His father worked as a clerk in a sugar refinery. His sister Elizaveta, three years his junior, was a renowned violinist.
