Naxos have announced the signing of an exclusive recording contract with Israeli pianist Boris Giltburg. 

Giltburg has been in the studio in recent weeks recording what will be his first recording for Naxos, due for release in February 2015. The programme of this first recording consists of Schumann's Papillons, Carnaval and Davidsbündlertänze. Current plans are for the second disc to be an all-Beethoven programme of the Waldstein, Pathétique and Op 111 sonatas, as well as the C minor Variations, WoO80. 

Giltburg's recent recordings for Orchid have been very well received in the reviews pages of Gramophone. In October last year his recording of sonatas by Grieg, Liszt and Rachmaninov was named an Editor's Choice, with critic Bryce Morrison saying, 'I can scarcely wait to hear Giltburg in other works from his already formidable repertoire.' And Giltburg's recording of Prokofiev's 'War' Sonatas was also an Editor's Choice in the Awards 2012 issue. 'Putting my head above a parapet, I have to say that these performances of Prokofiev’s three ‘War’ Sonatas eclipse all others on record – even those tirelessly and justifiably celebrated performances by Richter and Gilels,' wrote Morrison.
