Artist Bio

Lise de la Salle, piano

A native of France, Ms. de la Salle first came to international attention in 2005, at the age of 16, with a Bach/Liszt recording that Gramophone Magazine selected as "Recording of the Month." Ms. de la Salle, who records for the Naïve label, was then similarly recognized in 2008 for her recording of the first concertos of Liszt, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich – a remarkable feat for someone only 20 years old. Recent recordings offer works of Schumann and the Complete Works of Rachmaninoff for Piano and Orchestra with Fabio Luisi and the Philharmonia Zurich. The 2017-2018 season saw the release of Bach Unlimited on Naïve, which includes such works as the Italian Concerto, the Liszt Fantasy & Fugue on the Theme B.A.C.H. and the Bach/Busoni Chaconne.
