Nikolai Lugansky

02 Aug 2023 | 20:00 | Christ Church Cathedral, Christ Church

Rachmaninov Six moments musicaux, Op. 16
Rachmaninov Piano Sonata No. 2, Op. 36
Rachmaninov Études-tableaux, Op. 39

Nikolai Lugansky is the finest living exponent of the virtuoso Russian piano tradition, and returns to the Festival for this recital in the splendid surroundings of Christ Church Cathedral. His programme consists exclusively of the pianist’s beloved Sergei Rachmaninov, concluding with the epitome of the Russian composer’s pianistic romanticism: his explorations of sonority and texture, the Études-Tableaux. Before it, Lugansky weighs in with Rachmaninov’s monumental Piano Sonata No. 2 and his summation of pianist history and tradition, the Six moments musicaux.
