Notes & Reviews:

This is Nikolai Lugansky's fourth recording on Naïve / Ambroisie after praised Liszt, Rachmaninov and Grieg / Prokofiev discs. 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 colors. Together with the orchestra, sometimes through almost chamber character, they achieve to enhance both immediacy and sophistication of those works.
