THIS PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN CANCELLED
We regretfully announce that “Pianistic Poetry: Nikolai Lugansky in Recital”, originally scheduled to take place on 26 March 2017 (Sun) at HKU’s Grand Hall, will be cancelled.
A message from Nikolai: “I'm so sorry for not being able to come to HKU to play my recital because of current health problems. Especially as this was my first time back in Hong Kong since 1994, soon after the 10th Tchaikovsky Competition! I had such nice impressions and feelings about this wonderful city and its music fans, so I’ve always wanted to play here again. It’s such a pity I cannot come this time, but I hope to find another date to meet with the Hong Kong classical music audience as soon as possible!”
Please accept our apologies for the disappointment and inconvenience caused. Tickets purchased will be refunded. Thank you for your understanding and we appreciate your continued support!

‘...a pianist who has absolute intellectual control, staggering technical ability, delicate poeticism and a piratical spirit all in magical harmony’ (The Herald, November 2016)
Having just made his highly anticipated debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Russian pianist Nikolai Lugansky comes to Hong Kong with a recital programme of Tchaikovsky and Chopin. Winner of the 10th International Tchaikovsky Competition, Lugansky is known for his elegant virtuosity and blazing energy, ‘finely complemented with an innate sense of poetry’ (Gramophone). This sense of poetry makes him a perfect interpreter of Tchaikovsky and Chopin’s music, taking us on a sensational journey through the seasons, singing with his fingers the music written by the poet of the piano.
