About

Nikolai Lugansky offers a new refined and brilliant version of Chopin’s piano concertos, with the orchestra that probably has the best connection to the soul and the spirit of French-Polish composer, Sinfonia Varsovia, under Russian conductor Alexander Vedernikov.

As ever, Nikolai Lugansky displays a perfect balance between virtuosity and poetry, through a perfect technique and an amazing range of colours. Together with the orchestra, sometimes almost chamber in character, they enhance both the immediacy and the sophistication of those works.

Capable of great refinement and sensitivity in Mozart and Chopin, and of breath-taking virtuosity in Rachmaninov and Prokofiev, Nikolai Lugansky is a pianist of extraordinary depth and versatility. His solo recording featuring Rachmaninov’s two Piano Sonatas, released in Autumn 2012, won a number of awards, including an Echo Klassik, Diapason d’Or, ‘Gramophone Choice’, ‘Choc’ de Classica, and Scherzo ‘Excepcionales’.
