BBC Music Magazine

****

“The articulation…is breathtaking: such clarity for the turns of Prokofiev's 'Masks', such speed so well caught by the camerawork on fingers and blue-tinged keys in Liszt's 'Feux follets', such strength in the cascades of No. 10 and the glitter of Chopin's Etude Op. 10 No. 9.”

**

“"Vallée d’Obermann” sounds turgid...but “La Campanella” is rescued by Lugansky’s impeccable technical control.”
