EMIL GILELS - PIANIST

Autographed 8.25 x 11 gatefold program excerpt from a San Diego Symphony Orchestra program, November 15, 1978. Gilels performed the 1st Tchaikovsky piano concerto in B flat minor, op. 23. We offer with a glossy vintage 8 x 10 Deutsche Grammophon whole tone press photograph contemporary to the program.

Gilels (1916-1985) was on his 10th North American tour in 1978, one of the few Societ musicians who was allowed to come to America regularly. He made only two San Diego appearances during his career, this concert and a recital on March 4, 1969 during his 7th North American tour. Hence this specific program autographed is uncommon at best.

One light crease between the two biographies, which is barely visible here, or in person. Perfect for display with the photograph!
