EDITORS’ NOTES

Nikolai Lugansky has built his justly exalted reputation on finely crafted performances of the Russian repertoire, the music of Rachmaninoff being a particular speciality. He’s not a player to wear his heart on his sleeve—instead he impresses with his range of color and his beautifully lyrical phrasing. These 24 preludes offer the player a wonderful opportunity to explore so many textures at the keyboard, and Lugansky is at his finest in the ones where a gorgeous melody is floated over a rippling bassline. This is very elegant playing by someone who has lived long with this music.
