This short but interesting master class given by Russian pianist Nikolai Lugansky was published just last month and recorded in October 2015. Whilst giving concerts with the Czech Philharmonic, this acclaimed virtuoso pianist gave a master class for piano students at the Rudolfinum in Prague. I feel there is so much to learn and savour from watching workshops such as these. The second video features Lugansky’s reading of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Sonata No. 2 Op. 36, which is one of the works studied in the master class. I hope you enjoy it!
For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 level are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
