About Pianist Lise de la Salle
In just a few years, through her international concert appearances and her award-winning Naïve recordings, 29 year-old Lise de la Salle has established a reputation as one of today’s most exciting young artists and as a musician of uncommon sensibility and maturity. Her playing inspired a Washington Post critic to write, “For much of the concert, the audience had to remember to breathe… the exhilaration didn’t let up for a second until her hands came off the keyboard.” Born in Cherbourg, France in 1988, Ms. de la Salle was surrounded by music from her earliest childhood. She began studying the piano at the age of four and gave her first concert at nine in a live broadcast on Radio-France. She first came to international attention in 2005, at the age of 16, with a Bach/Liszt recording that Gramophone Magazine selected as "Recording of the Month.“ To learn more about Lise de la Salle, visit lisedelasalle.com.
