The Piano nouvelle génération cycle at the Fondation Louis Vuitton continues in March with the young pianist, Lucas Debargue. After solo debuts at the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg, he was soon invited to perform at major concert halls in Russia, Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, etc.
Now aged twenty-five, Lucas Debargue rose to prominence at the prestigious Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow, obtaining 4th prize, notably thanks to a sensational rendition of Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit. He was also the only candidate over the entire range of disciplines to receive the Moscow Music Critics Special Prize.
For the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Lucas Debargue proposes a programme of Mozart (Sonata K310), Chopin (Ballade no. 4), Liszt (Mephisto Waltz), and Ravel (Gaspard de la Nuit).
