"[Lugansky] is a pianist capable of the most wistful refinement; the first movement's lyric goal swims poetically into sight and the scherzo-fantaisie at the heart of the central Andantino flashes past with every note beautifully placed. "
--- BBC Music Magazine, January 2004
"The huge cadenza is not played with the usual impetuous thrust; instead its detail is relished. The following central Andantino, introduced delectably by the flute, is played by Lugansky with exquisite delicacy, followed by a scintillating central Scherzando. The finale bursts forth with irrepressible dash and virtuosity, the orchestral players surging into their tuttis with abandon."
