March 28, 2024: Guest host Warren Black welcomes pianist Boris Giltburg and trumpeter Jeff Work to the Roger O. Doyle performance studio.

Boris Giltburg is presented by Portland Piano International. Jeff Work is the Oregon Symphony’s Principal Trumpet.


Boris Giltburg, the Moscow-born, Israeli pianist is lauded across the globe as a deeply sensitive, insightful and compelling interpreter. Critics have praised his “singing line, variety of touch and broad dynamic palette capable of great surges of energy” (Washington Post) as well as his impassioned, narrative-driven approach to performance: “the interplay of spiritual calm and emphatic engagement is gripping, and one could not wish for a more illuminating, lyrical or more richly phrased interpretation” (Suddeutsche Zeitung).
