Show One presents:
An exceptional Montreal premiere!
LUCAS DEBARGUE, pianist
He was THE sensation of the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition.
The audience, international media, and competition followers worldwide are all in agreement about Lucas Debargue:
“A pianistic phenomenon”
“As passionate as atypical”
A poetic genius… a one-of-a-kind artist!
He may have been “A star no one saw coming” (Verbier Festival), but Lucas Debargue now tours the world, his celebrity preceding him everywhere, as he performs sold-out concerts in the most prestigious venues – solo recitals and concertos with Valery Gergiev and other A-list conductors.
His Montreal program reflects the many facets of his immense talent:
Scarlatti: 2 sonatas – A major and D minor
Chopin: Scherzo No. 1 and 2; - Barcarolle in F sharp major “Heroic” Polonaise
Fauré: 2 Barcarolles – A minor and A flat major
Ravel: Gaspard de la Nuit
A genius of this sort rarely crosses our path. This is one debut recital certain to stand out in Montreal’s musical history!
