Extractions: Venue: Zellerbach Hall B Price: Subscription Series: Choose-Your-Own Recital Instrumental B Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman's career has been marked by standards of excellence so impeccable that, for more than 10 years, he has insisted on traveling with his own piano. The confidence afforded by his own thoroughly familiar instrument allows the artist to reduce to the absolute minimum everything that might distract him from purely musical issues. Wherever the pianist's tours take him, he can be counted on for music-making of the highest order. "Zimerman's approach to playing the piano has greatness written all over it. It has intensity, majesty, intimacy, daring, and simplicity, and above all insight" ( The Times , London).

Extractions: PROM 66 Prokofiev, Shostakovich ; Nikolai Lugansky (piano), Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Alexander Lazarev (conductor); Royal Albert Hall, 8 th September 2003 (AR) The highlight of this Prom was the incandescent playing of Prokofievs youthful First Piano Concerto by of Moscow born pianist Nikolai Lugansky. Undoubtedly one of the greatest living exponents of the classical Russian repertoire, despite his youth, Lugansky brought colour and clarity to the score, playing with both great agility and vigour: one second, rippling and sparkling; the next metallic, brittle, bringing hard-edges to the first movement. In the closing passages he played like a man possessed, at such great speed his hands were a veritable blur, but despite this frantic velocity, nothing was fudged, and all the notes were given distinct value. Though well paced by Alexander Lazarev, the orchestral playing from the brass was often too loud, sometimes drowned out the soloist. After this inspired first half what followed was a travesty: the noisiest and most crudely conducted account of Shostakovichs Symphony No.7 in C Leningrad (1941)
Extractions: (Warner Classics 2564 61255-2) THIS is a splendid CD - from the group of young Russian pianists that has emerged during the last ten years, Nikolai Lugansky is undoubtedly one of the best. Playing Prokofiev piano sonatas isn't easy - one has to sound fresh without sounding aggressive - and Lugansky manages that more than adequately. His rapid tempi are positively thrilling and he displays a talent rarely found today. The only other pianist I find myself comparing him to when it comes to Prokofiev, is Pogorelich - and it's a toss-up as to who interprets this composer in the best possible light. (Forget Kissin when it comes to Prokofiev - he's much better at playing Liszt!) I can't say that I often listen to Prokofiev's Piano Sonata No. 4, subtitled 'From Old Notebooks', (the sonata is made up of themes that Prokofiev had already jotted down in one of his notebooks). I have always thought of the piece as interesting - yet Lugansky makes it sound thoroughly exhilarating. Lugansky plays the more familiar Piano Sonata No. 6 as only a Russian can, interpreting the well-known opening theme powerfully and some would say too swiftly. Lugansky finds the scorn in the waltz movement and brings it to the fore. The finale is pure magic - and it's positively the most rapid finale that I've ever heard.
