Before the age of twenty, Lise de la Salle was already recognized as 'a talent in a million' (Gramophone). Lise has awed critics with her artistry and mesmerized audiences throughout the United States and Europe. Her 2010-11 recital season includes performances in Vienna's Konzerthaus, the Paris Theatre des Champs-Elysees, Hamburg's Ladiszhalle, Chicago's Mandel Hall, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and at the Ansbach Bach Week, among others. As a Young Concert Artists alumna, she will join the organization's 50th anniversary musical marathon celebration at Symphony Space. During the past few seasons, Ms. de la Salle's North American appearances included recitals in New York, Montreal, San Francisco, Vancouver, Quebec, St. Paul, at the Gilmore International Keyboard Festival, Duke University and in Miami, among others. She releases two records in the 2010-11 season: her already critically acclaimed fifth CD - a Chopin disc including a live recording of the Piano Concerto 2, Opus 2 with Fabio Luisi conducting the Staatskapelle Dresden as well as the Four Ballades - and, on May 31, 2011, her sixth recording - an all-Liszt album of the composer's original works, including the Ballade No. 2 in b minor, Funerailles, and the Dante Sonata as well as transcriptions including Lacrymosa after Mozart and Standchen after Schubert, in celebration of Liszt's Bicentennial.
