The training I received at the Academy was difficult and at times harsh, but those who survived the experience emerged as real musicians.

Nikolai Lugansky (piano)

Nikolai Lugansky’s career as a pianist began with a red toy piano that his father gave him at the age of five and a half. Hearing his father’s off-key play, the precocious child showed him which keys to strike in order to obtain a good tune. From here, it was a straight line to becoming a musician: music school, competitions, then in 1996 debuting at the Hollywood Bowl at a concert on the tour of the Kirov Theatre Orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev. Since then, Lugansky has appeared on numerous stages with leading orchestras; he has also been to Hungary several times. His Rachmaninov and Chopin recordings are especially highly rated. Besides performing and recording, the Russian artist teaches at the Moscow Conservatory as assistant to professor Sergei Dorensky.
