Held

Lise de la Salle, piano

Lise de la Salle first received international attention at the age of 16. Gramophone selected the young French woman’s interpretations of Bach and Liszt the ‘Recording of the Month’. A few years later, she was able to add piano concerts in cooperation with the Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles Philharmonics, among others, to her resume. Moreover, to put it mildly, the critics were enthusiastic. Likewise after her concert here with us, where the critic of Kristeligt Dagblad, Jakob Hom, bestowed her with the highest number of stars and wrote: ‘you felt obliged to bend over in the dust due to this combination of authoritative virtuosity and musical depth.’
