Nikolai Lugansky performs a programme of virtuosic piano works live from the Edinburgh International Festival.

Opening with Janácek’s atmospheric In The Mists, the programme also includes Schubert’s Four Impromptus and five of Rachmaninov’s explosive Etudes-tableaux.

This afternoon’s concert concludes with two pieces by LisztLes jeux d’eaux à la Villa d’Este (from Années de Pèlerinage) and his transcription of Wagner’s Lieberstod.
