Russian pianist Nikolai Lugansky signs exclusive recording contract

Paris, 26 September 2011

Combining uncommon finesse and sensitivity with breath-taking virtuosity, Moscow-born pianist Nikolai Lugansky is a noted interpreter of a broad range of works, and has become a reference in the late Romantic repertoire. He is present on international stages, from the St Petersburg Philharmonic Hall to the Wigmore Hall in London, as well as the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Théâtre des Champs Elysées and the Salle Pleyel in Paris. He also appears regularly with leading orchestras, such as the Chicago Symphony, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, the Leipzig Gewandhaus, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Patrick Zelnik says:'There are dreams that come true. Nikolai Lugansky is a wizard of the keyboard, like the great Russian pianists who preceded him, in particular Emil Gilels. I am deeply moved and honoured by the trust he shows in us in signing a recording contract with Naïve on the Naïve/Ambroisie label.'
To inaugurate this new collaboration, Nikolai Lugansky has chosen to devote his first recital to Franz Liszt, a composer whose works he has frequently performed in concert but had never recorded for CD until now. The disc is released in the UK on 24 October, catalogue number AM205.

This disc will be reviewed in a future issue of Pianist magazine. Subscribe to Pianist today, to ensure that you don't miss any of our CD reviews or important piano news stories
