    In just a few years through her international concert appearances and her award-winning Naïve recordings, Lise de la Salle has established herself as one of today’s most exciting young artists and as a musician of uncommon sensibility and maturity. Inspired by her playing, a Washington Post critic wrote, “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.”

    A native of France, de la Salle first came to international attention in 2005, at the age of 16, with a Bach/Liszt recording that was selected as Recording of the Month by Gramophone Magazine. She was then similarly recognized in 2008 for her recording of Liszt’s, Prokofiev’s, and Shostakovich’s first concertos—a remarkable feat for someone only 20 years old.

    She has played with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors, making her London Symphony Orchestra debut with Fabio Luisi, who later had invited her to become the first artist-in-residence of the Zurich Opera. In the United States, de la Salle has played with the Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, and three times with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, among others. She has been tagged by one critic as being “…the most exciting young artist in classical music right now.”
