Michel Dalberto

Piano

Born in 1955 in Paris, into a family from the Dauphiné region, Michel Dalberto studied at the Conservatoire de Paris under Vlado Perlemuter, a pupil of Alfred Cortot.

After winning two of the most prestigious international competitions, the Clara Haskil in 1975 and the Leeds in 1978, his place on the international stage was established.

Dalberto is particularly admired for his performances of Schubert (he is the only living pianist to have recorded the composer’s entire works for piano) and of Mozart, having played all his concertos. His repertoire also includes many pieces by Liszt, Schumann, Brahms, Beethoven, Scriabin, the Second Viennese School and more.

Dalberto has worked with leading conductors such as Erich Leinsdorf, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Colin Davis, Yuri Temirkanov, Daniele Gatti and Charles Dutoit. He has collaborated with artists such as Henryk Szeryng and Nikita Magaloff, and has also worked with Emanuel Ax, Yuri Bashmet, Boris Belkin, Renaud Capuçon, Lynn Harrell, Truls Mork, Emmanuel Pahud and Michel Portal.

Among the singers he has performed with are the great Barbara Hendricks, Jessye Norman, Nathalie Stutzman and Stephen Genz.

Dalberto was the Director of the Académie des Arcs in Savoie between 1990 and 2004, and served as Chairman of the judging panel of the Haskil Competition from 1991 to 2009.

Since 2011, he has taught at the Conservatoire de Paris.

In terms of recordings, Michel Dalberto has begun recording a series of discs dedicated to Debussy, Ravel, Fauré and Franck for the APARTÉ label. Each programme is recorded live in concert on a specific piano. Mezzo is filming the recitals. The first volume, dedicated to work by Debussy, received widespread acclaim. In 2017, a recording of works by Fauré was released, which has set the benchmark. This will be followed by a recording of works by Franck in October 2018, and by a Ravel programme in April 2019.

Meanwhile, ERATO WARNER plans to rerelease all Dalberto’s recordings made for Erato, EMI and Virgin. Entitled “The making of a musician”, this box set of 15 CDs will include a recording of Liszt’s 12 Etudes d’Exécution Transcendante recorded in 1986 but never previously released.

Upgraded in 1996 to the rank of Chevalier of the Ordre National du Mérite, Dalberto is a keen skier and is also a highly proficient deep-sea diver.

Récital Eric Lu

Eric Lu invites us on a journey through the Romantic era, in the shadow of Mozart. Brahms and Chopin create a dialogue of contrasts, the German composer’s melancholy Klavierstücke echoing the famous “Funeral March” of Chopin’s Sonata No. 2. Nostalgia and virtuosity come together in the same breath.
