Nikolai Lugansky was just 16 when he won the greatest piano competition in the former Soviet Union in 1988, he took silver on the international stage at the Bach competition and Rachmaninoff competition, then he walked away with first prize from the 1994 International Tchaikovsky Competition. He enjoys concert playing as much as recording and has a long list of top accolades. Lugansky is a regular guest artist on the Budapest concert scene as soloist at his own concerts or at piano recitals. Even though he has a stunningly rich chamber repertoire, we only rarely have the chance to meet him as a chamber musician. He regularly appears alongside world-class instrumentalists, with violinist Vadim Repin ranked as a regular partner of his. This concert at the Liszt Academy sees him at the side of another great artist, Kristóf Baráti. Baráti had this to say about chamber music: “… it is the essence of performance art for all musicians.” In the light of this statement, it is only natural that the programme of his joint concert with Lugansky should be a selection of essential violin sonatas.
