CD Reviews

The ideal Rachmaninov interpreter
- | 12/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the Rachmaninov cd you should listen to. Here Lugansky plays his favorite composer and it is immediately evident. The young Russian virtuoso seems here to mix Michelangeli's meticulous and fluent playing, Richter's great virtuosism and Gilels's magic tone. I've never listen to anyone playing the wonderful Préludes n.2.and n.7 op.23 and the Moment Musicaux op.16 n.4 and n.6 as fast, fluently and overall expressive as Lugansky's version even though i've to listen to Berezovsky's one. Anyway this record is a benchmark for all Rachmaniniov's interpreters."
Truly appreciating classical music

"Rachmaninov as a composer is pushing the boundaries of romanticism. his compositions are complex and dark. if you've never heard of Rachmaninov before, then you must really appreciate classical piano to understand his preludes and musical moments.
Lugansky has a facility, i think, most accomplished pianists wish to achieve. this really speaks volumes on how well Lugansky plays the piano. this album has the best interpretations, in my opinion. i think 'musically' it even surpasses some of Rachmaninov's own recordings. these pieces are interpreted so beautifully, it brings out its dark aura and longing melodies. if you like classical piano, you have to buy this album."
