Lise de la Salle, Piano
24-year-old French pianist Lise de la Salle has emerged as one of the most acclaimed artists of her generation, praised for inspired performances of virtuosity and depth. The Washington Post wrote, "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." Ms. de la Salle began playing piano at the age of four and gave her first concert at nine in a live broadcast on Radio-France. At 13, she made her concerto debut with Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in Avignon and her Paris recital debut at the Louvre before going on tour with the Orchestre National d’Ile de France. At 16, she came to international attention with her Bach/Liszt recording for Naive which was selected by Gramophone as "Recording of the Month."
In May 2011, Naive issued her sixth recording – an all-Liszt album of the composer's original works, including the Ballade No. 2 in b minor, Funerailles, and the Dante Sonata as well as transcriptions including Lacrymosa after Mozart and Standchen after Schubert, in celebration of Liszt's Bicentennial. The album was named the "Diapason D'or" by Diapason Magazine, in addition to being "Editor's Choice" in Gramophone Magazine. As stated by Gramophone Magazine, "...the wonderfully gifted 22-year-old Lise de la Salle gives us a Liszt recital of astonishing strength, poetry, and, for one so young, musical maturity."
