Born in 1984 in Moscow, Boris Giltburg moved to Tel Aviv at an early age. Having won the Santander Competition in 2002 and taken second (and audience) prize at the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in 2011, he has appeared with leading orchestras, such as the Israel Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Swedish Radio Symphony, and Danish Radio Symphony. He made his BBC Proms debut in 2010, and has toured regularly to South America and China. In 2013 he won first prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition (Brussels), with subsequent concerts in Vienna, London, Tokyo, Brussels and Seattle. He has worked with esteemed conductors such as Neeme Järvi, Edo de Waart and Christoph von Dohnányi. For the 2015/16 Season, The Royal Scottish National Orchestra invited him for seven concerts in their Rachmaninov series.

Having initially appeared on the EMI Debut label, in 2012 Giltburg released an acclaimed CD of Prokofiev’s War Sonatas on Orchid Classics. In 2015, with the release of a Schumann recital disc, he began a long-term recording plan with Naxos Records.
