Louis Lortie, piano
“One of a half-dozen pianists worth dropping everything to hear” (The Daily Telegraph, London), Louis Lortie’s interpretive forte embraces a vast stylistic repertoire. From Beethoven, Mozart, and Liszt to Lutosławski, Scriabin and Stravinsky, this acclaimed French Canadian artist is celebrated around the globe for his insightful musicality. With Chopin, he truly transcends. At the Williams Center, Lortie will bring his spontaneous and imaginative perspective to the composer as part of his “complete works” recording project on the Chandos label, performances that have been fittingly crowned “Chopin playing of sublime genius” (Fanfare Magazine).
Program: Chopin / Etudes, Op. 10; Etudes, Op. 25; and Preludes, Op. 28
