LOUIS LORTIE

Louis Lortie

The opening of the Fazioli Concert Hall Series, 9th edition, is entrusted to the French-Canadian pianist Louis Lortie.

The "Die Welt" newspaper prised the Beethoven performances from Louis Lortie as "the best ever since the time of Wilhelm Kempff”, but the Artist is completely at ease in the widest repertoire. His peculiarity is the continuous search for an originality of interpretation across a broad spectrum of styles. It is worth to mention his performances of Chopin, Brahms and Ravel piano music, beyond the homage paid to Liszt in 2011 presenting the complete cycle of the Années de pèlerinage in Weimar, Berlin, Bayreuth and in the main capitals and most prestigious music festivals worldwide. Lortie's style (described by The Times as "pure and imaginative") is always fascinating for the audience and able to gain the critics acclaim: this explains also the success of his many recordings - more than thirty - for the Chandos label.

« ever immaculate, ever imaginative…
a combination of total spontaneity and
meditated ripeness that only great pianists have»
