How can White win this?

This position is taken from the chess game Taimanov-Kuzminikh played in the Soviet Union in 1950. White has to play and the most obvious idea could be to go for the Bishop exchange and move forward. However, there’s a pretty little combination sitting out there. Can you spot it?
