Chopin: The Piano Concertos

Orchestras / Ensembles
Catalogue numberAM212
Release date2014-04-29
Orig. sample rate192000Hz

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 achieve to enhance both immediacy and sophistication of those works. Capable of great refinement and sensitivity in Mozart and Chopin, and breathtaking 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’, and was followed by a recording with Kent Nagano and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin of the Grieg Piano Concerto and Prokofiev’s Third.

Nikolai Lugansky records exclusively for the Naive-Ambroisie label.
