All-Liszt program launches Nikolai Lugansky’s exclusive recording deal with Naïve

Pianist Nikolai Lugansky is to mark the launch of an “exclusive long-term” contract with French label Naïve with a recital of works for solo piano by Liszt.

The recording is the first by the Russian pianist to feature Liszt’s music, and among the included works are La Campanella, Vallée d’Obermann, Sposalizio, Sonnet de Pétrarque 123, and Chasse-neige.

Lugansky began his recording career in 1987 on Melodia, and has since released albums with a number of independent labels, including Vanguard Classics and PentaTone Classics, as well as for Warner Classics, Erato Disques and Deutsche Grammophon. His only previous release for Naïve was a live DVD recording of his recital at the 2002
La Roque d’Antheron International Piano Festival in France.

Patrick Zelnik, President and CEO of Naïve, said: “Nikolai Lugansky is a wizard of the keyboard, like the great Russian pianists who preceded him, in particular Emil Gilels. I am deeply moved and honoured by the trust he shows in us in signing a recording contract with Naïve.”

Nikolai Lugansky’s Liszt recital is scheduled for release in October on the Naïve/Ambroisie label.
