HP Futures concert: Paris city of lights — Lise de la Salle plays Mozart, Ravel, Fauré and Chopin
17 May 2022 19:30
Lise de la Salle conjures an ephemeral dreamscape of reflections, folk and dance inspired solo piano music.
A pianist of sensibility and maturity, Lise de la Salle is one of today’s most exciting young artists. “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” (Washington Post ). Lise takes us on a joyful and contemplative storytelling journey discovering and merging Mozart’s jubilant Rondo and French rhyme Twelve Variations on Ah vous dirai je, Maman together withFauré’s folk-inspired work in Barcarolle, with the sensitive explorations of Ravel’s Miroirs, culminating in Chopin’s balletic dance piece Ballade.
