Notes and Editorial Reviews



In the Grieg Concerto, Lugansky is as rhapsodic and affectionate as he is masterly. In the Prokofiev, his performance blazes with conviction, a propulsion and energy finely complemented wth an innate sense of poetry. In a marketplace where great recordings jostle for attention, Lugansky takes his own special place.
