Nikolai Lugansky plays Great Wagner Opera Transcriptions

Nikolai Lugansky (piano)

Wagner’s genius is often associated with his unique feeling for orchestration. Yet the transcriptions and paraphrases for piano solo recorded here lay bare the beauty and boldness of his harmonic language, with an evocative power unrivalled at the time. Nikolai Lugansky, at once narrator and virtuoso, immerses us in a world where the heroes of legend tell us – and with what loftiness of spirit! – of the torments and aspirations of humanity.
