Bienvenue en France! French pianist Lise de la Salle has emerged as one of the most acclaimed artists of her generation. She makes her LACO debut in Saint-Saëns’ delightful, show-stopping nod to Parisian cabaret music. Her dynamic countryman Louis Langrée, celebrated music director of New York’s Mostly Mozart Festival, illuminates the Ravel gem and brings his refined musical sensibility, formidable technique and radiant personality to the challenge of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2. Don’t miss it!
Lise de la Salle “played so well that, 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 and everyone could finally come up for air.” (The Washington Post)
Louis Langrée “led compelling performances…The Beethoven was theatrical in the best sense. A laser-like focus animated rhythms and boldly carved shapes, heating even the finest pianissimo.” (Dallas Morning News)
