On October 26, 1976, he was on stage, alone, in a repertoire of rare complexity in front of "people who are passionate about music", says Kirill. Enthusiastic but demanding. We can imagine Emil Gilels both serene and tense, on the lookout for the slightest whisper, in harmony, as soon as the silence sets in, with these composers he reveres: Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, Prokofiev.

Gilels knows how to lead us with elegance towards the delicious final surprise. There are interpretations so profound, so sincere and so right that they leave a lasting impression. There is no doubt that Emil Gilels' performance on that winter evening in 1976 in the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam is one of them.

Recorded at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, on Oct. 26, 1976 and Jan. 30, 1979
