Nikolai Lugansky

Flagey

Flagey is particularly proud to count the Russian pianist Nikolai Lugansky among its artists in residence. He is invited to Studio 4 at Flagey on two occasions, in recital and as soloist with the Brussels Philharmonic. The music of Sergei Rachmaninoff connects both concerts. And there is a reason for this. Lugansky is renowned as one of the great interpreters of Rachmaninoff’s music: he is artistic director of the Tambov Rachmaninov Festival and was awarded the Diapason d’Or and an ECHO Klassik for his Rachmaninov recordings.

Brussels Philharmonic, Nikolai Lugansky

Flagey

A whole evening devoted to the musical genius of Sergei Rachmaninov. His First Piano Concerto is filled with youthful bravura and virtuoso passages, but also a very characteristic romanticism. Years later, Rachmaninov started work on his third and final symphony: the loss of his homeland echoes through the rich, melancholy music – but so does the jazzy and optimistic America. A marvellous work that more than deserves its place in concert halls.
