Nikolai Lugansky: Interview
Verbier Festival 2012
"Play only the pieces you are in love with. If you are really in love with the piece, it is like love: first time meeting is of course very special, but very often, the tenth time can be even better".
In 2012, Nikolai Lugansky was participating in his first Verbier Festival. medici.tv has met with the pianist... in the cable cars!
"How do you approach a piece you have performed many times before to keep it fresh? Outside a professional music, do you get together to play and socialize with other local musicians? If you could describe the joy of playing in one word?"
For the sixth consecutive year, medici.tv spent a few weeks in the station of the Swiss Alps to film and broadcast live on the internet the highlights of the world's famous festival. The perfect occasion to meet the artists and have discussions with them. The particularity of these interviews? You were the journalists!
