The season of "Enchantment" continues with Debussy’s vivid and shimmering depiction of a lustful man-goat’s attempted seduction of sleeping nymphs in Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, and with Lutosławski’s brilliant Concerto for Orchestra, an orchestral showcase shot through with Polish folk melodies.
Winner of the 1994 Tchaikovsky Competition, and celebrated by The Guardian for his “dazzling technique [that is] exceptionally secure, balanced, and beautifully articulated,” piano star Nikolai Lugansky returns to Aspen for Beethoven’s final, most ambitious, and much loved piano concerto.
Also see Nikolai Lugansky in recital on July 18.
