Rachmaninov CD Review in La Libre Belgique ***

Born in Russia in 1977, Irina Lankova brilliantly graduated in Moscow before coming to perfect her skills in Brussels with Professor Eugene Moguilevsky, and taking master classes with Vitaly Margulis. Blessed with a sensitive and affirmed personality, the young pianist has performed several times in Brussels, and has now recorded her first CD, revealing great qualities, with a good taste in the choice of repertoire and a complete involvement. The eloquent, colourful and dynamic sound of the piano enables the listener to sense in an exceptional way the personal feelings of the interpreter, particularly in the Rachmaninov, where the music is passionate, extremely Russian, but never sugary.

A beautiful temperament!
