“His performances were exemplary in tonal clarity, textural richness, and what George Bernard Shaw used to call 'marksmanship.'”
— Seattle Times
Described by Gramophone as "the most trailblazing and meteoric performer of all," Nikolai Lugansky is a pianist of extraordinary depth and versatility. Concerto highlights for the 2018-19 season include performances with the Minnesota Orchestra, Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Russian National Orchestra, Orquesta Nacional de España, and the Iceland and Bamberg symphonies. He regularly appears at some of the world's most distinguished festivals, including Aspen, Tanglewood, Ravinia, and Verbier. In 2001 Lugansky’s recital CD featuring Rachmaninov's Piano Sonatas won the Diapason d'Or, and his recording of concertos by Grieg and Prokofiev with Kent Nagano and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin was a Gramophone Editor's Choice. In April 2013 Lugansky was awarded the honor of People's Artist of Russia.
