White to play

The position looks critical. Black is planning to hide the king and perhaps start with Ng7-f5 to increase the control over the dark squares around the king. Black's heavy pieces are very active and well placed. The rook pins white's bishop to the rook on h4 and the queen pins white's pawn on g2 to the king on h2. White has winning ambitions. Can they be backed up with concrete variations?
