Notes & Reviews:

Nikolai Lugansky, now a household name on the international concert stages, began his recording career in his early twenties for the label Vanguard Classics. This Rachmaninoff recital contains a lyrical and transparent performance of the famous second sonata, several song transcriptions, the well known Corelli Variations and a hair-raising performance of Rachmaninov's transcription of Mendelssohn's "Scherzo" from A Midsummer Night's Dream. Lugansky, hailed by his teacher Tatiana Nikolaeva as "the next one," has enjoyed an impressive career, and now performs with the world's most famous orchestras and conductors.
