Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Young talent does not come more brilliantly or ardently alive than this." -- Gramophone, reviewing Lise de la Salle's Mozart/Prokofiev CD

Born in 1988, Lise de la Salle did not wait until her recent majority to demonstrate her maturity. She is only just emerging from adolescence, but the underlying significance of her career choices and her perfectionism is already evident.

Her first concert at Radio France, at the age of nine, and her First Prize at the Ettlingen International Competition at the age of twelve revealed her precocious talent.A scholarship holder from the Fondation d’Entreprise Banque Populaire-Natexis and winner of first prizes at both the Young Concert Artists European Auditions and
Read more the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Lise de la Salle collects awards as if reaping the benefits of the invaluable assets she has acquired from mentors such as Pascal Nemirovski, who has taught her since she was ten. While continuing to work with him, she also obtained a Premier Prix at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris-CNR in the class of Pierre Réach, then went on to the postgraduate cycle at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, in Bruno Rigutto’s class. During this time she has also received guidance from Geneviève Joy-Dutilleux.

At the dawn of the third millennium, Lise de la Salle saw her concert engagements multiply, both in France and abroad. She has now performed in such venues as the Auditorium du Louvre, Auditorium de Lyon, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Salle Gaveau, Opéra d’Avignon, Herkulessaal in Munich, Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Konzerthaus and Philharmonie in Berlin, and the St Petersburg Philharmonic Hall, and the festivals of La Roque-d’Anthéron, Saint-Riquier, and Bad Kissingen. Her recent debuts in Berlin, Tokyo,Washington and New York were all highly successful, as were her tours of Japan, the United States and Germany in 2005.

This recognition of her skills has gone hand-in-hand with growing admiration from musicians with whom she has worked, including the conductors Lawrence Foster, Jun Märkl, Moshe Atzmon, Arie Van Beek, Andreas Stoehr, Keith Lockhart, James Gaffigan,Alexander Dmitriev, Hannu Lintu and Semyon Bychkov, and such ensembles as the Orchestre de l’Opéra d’Avignon, Orchestre d’Auvergne, Schleswig-Holstein Orchestra, Orchestre National d’Île-de-France, Orchestre National de Belgique, Orchestre National de Lyon, Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie, Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa, Staatskapelle Weimar, St Petersburg Academic State Symphony Orchestra, and WDR Sinfonieorchester of Cologne.

In 2002, her first recording, devoted to Ravel and Rachmaninoff, marked the beginning of a collaboration with Naïve which has continued with a prize-winning Bach/Liszt programme.

 A FINE YOUNG PIANIST !! June 25, 2013 By S. Pearson (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "I CAUGHT PART OF THE CONCERTO NO. 2 ON MY CAR RADIO; I IMMEDIATELY TURNED IT UP.. AS I RECOGNIZED THE PIECE, BUT OH.. HOW EXPRESSIVE ! THAT QUALITY IS IMPORTANT TO ME.. I HEARD THE CONCERTO IN A NEW WAY. De La Salle HAS HER OWN WAY, AND I LIKE THAT! SHE CAN BE VERY SOFT AND SOUL-SEARCHING, HOWEVER WHEN THE POWER IS NEEDED...SHE DELIVERS IN SPADES! I DID FIND ONE THING WHICH RATTLED ME... IN THE BALLAD NO.3, HER FIRST HIT ON THE HIGH KEY WAS ALMOST TOO STRONG IN RELATION TO THE SOFTER TOUCH IN THE CONTEXT. BUT THAT IS SMALL... IN COMPARISON TO THE OVERALL STRENGTH AND SENSITIVITY SHE USUALLY CONVEYS. THERE ARE FEW PIANISTS WHOM I FULLY "TRUST" WITH ANY PIECE... BUT SHE IS WELL ON HER WAY TO EARNING THAT TRUST FROM ME. SAMPLE A LISTEN... SHE'S EXTREMELY GIFTED." Report Abuse
