Lucas Debargue

Maison symphonique January 19, 2020

French pianist Lucas Debargue became the most talked-about artist of the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition : "this pianist is not like any other". He was the only candidate chosen unnimously to receive the coveted Moscow Music Critic Award. Straight after the Competition, the world instantly took note of this startling and original new talent and Debargue was invited to play solo and with leading orchestras in the most prestigious concert halls in the world. The Montreal audience was mesmerized by his performance in 2017.

The programme Debargue has chosen for his 2nd Montreal recital  lets us penetrate  into his intimate and profound world  enabling us to capture the essence of his unique music making. We will share his fascination for one of the most illustrious and prolific composers of the Baroque period  Domenico Scarlatti and marvel at 9 of his miniatures sonatas. We will surely all discover Nicolai Medtner’s Sonata in G minor, brought to the attention of the Russian public at the Tchaikovsky Competition by Debargue. The programme brings us to J. B. Bach‘s striking Toccata in C minor and concludes with Franz Liszt’s spectacular Dante : Fantasia quasi sonata inspired by his Divine Comedy

We will live an extraordinary experience with Lucas Debargue and his eclectic programme, the miror of his immense talent.
