LISE DE LA SALLE

Salle

Works by Beethoven, Ligeti, and Brahms

 In just a few years, through her international concert appearances and her award-winning Naïve recordings, Lise de la Salle has established a reputation as one of today’s most exciting young pianists and as a musician of uncommon sensibility and maturity. This twenty-eight-year-old French artist has already appeared as soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras under such noted conductors as Lorin Maazel, Semyon Bychkov, Marek Janowski, Sir Neville Marriner, and Lawrence Foster. 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.”

KIRILL GERSTEIN

kirill

Works by Brahms and Liszt

With a masterful technique, discerning intelligence, and a musical curiosity that has led him to explore repertoire spanning centuries and styles, this multifaceted Russian-Israeli-American pianist has rapidly ascended into classical music’s highest ranks and “emerged as one of the most respected pianists of his generation” (The New York Times). After pursuing jazz piano at age fourteen as the youngest student ever to attend Boston’s Berklee College of Music, he continued on to win First Prize at the 2001 Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv followed by a 2010 Gilmore Artist Award and a 2010 Avery Fisher Career Grant.
