Instrumental Focus

In just a few years through her international concert appearances and her award-winning Naïve recordings, 29 year-old Lise de la Salle has established a reputation as one of today's most exciting young artists, and is a musician of uncommon sensibility and maturity. Ms. de la Salle came to international attention in 2005 at the age of 16 with a Bach/Liszt recording that was selected as "Recording of the Month" by Gramophone.  She was similarly recognized in 2008 for her recording of Liszt’s, Prokofiev’s and Shostakovich’s first concertos – a remarkable feat at only 20 years old. 

Lise de la Salle has played with many of the world's leading orchestras and conductors. She most recently made her London Symphony Orchestra debut with Fabio Luisi, who invited her to become the first Artist-in-Residence of the Zurich Opera. In this country, Ms. de la Salle has performed with the Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, San Francisco Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, among others. A sought-after recitalist, she has performed to enthusiastic audiences and critics in major series in New York, Boston, Washington DC, San Francisco, the Philharmonie in Berlin, Wigmore Hall in London, and the Louvre in Paris.
