About

Rachmaninov - Piano Sonatas Nos 1 & 2 [AM208]
"an astonishing Rachmaninov Sonata recital...very exciting playing in two extremely taxing works...Lugansky's playing suggests wild abandon but in fact derives from tremedously discipline, focused attention to Rachmaninov's swathes of notes and pulverising rhythms...his electrifying account of the Mephistopheles movement trumps all. I rate this as the best recording of this work...A really impressive disc." - Calum MacDonald, BBC Music Magazine *****

Liszt - Piano Works [AM205]
Lugansky's exceptional command of tremolo figuration really does have Liszt's keyboard figuration shimmering as it should. - BBC Music Magazine, January 2012

Once you have settled to Lugansky's sometimes glossy tone, it is hard not to be seduced by the playing of a natural Lisztian, as alive to textual detail as conveying a work's drama and poetry. Look no further than his bravura handling of Vallee d'Oberman, surely on of the composer's most inspired masterpieces, rising to ecstatic heights in the final pages. - Classic FM Magazine, March 2012, *****
