The Seattle RecitalDeutsche Grammophon
Between 1955 and 1983 Emil Gilels toured North America twelve times. Unlike his Soviet colleague and rival Sviatoslav Richter, Gilels loved the US. "I first came here 22 years ago," he said in 1977. "I lost here in the United States very much of my heart. You know, I left here a good portion of my life." This certainly held true for his fifth tour, an arduous three months of recitals, concerto dates and recording sessions that began and ended on the East Coast. In between came four West Coast appearances – in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland, as well as the present recital recorded in the Seattle Opera House on December 6, 1964 and released here for the first time.
