The highly-esteemed French-Canadian pianist Louis Lortie possesses a unique interpretative voice spanning a broad range of repertoire, with the “combination of total spontaneity and meditated ripeness that only great pianists have” (The Times).
Lortie has extended his interpretative voice across a broad range of repertoire rather than choosing to specialize in one particular style. The London Times has identified his “combination of total spontaneity and meditated ripeness that only great pianists have.” A prolific recording artist, he boasts a discography of over 45 recordings for Chandos, covering repertoire from Mozart to Stravinsky, including a set of the complete Beethoven sonatas and the complete Liszt Années de pèlerinage. Lortie is currently Master in Residence at The Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Brussels and Artistic Director of the LacMus International Festival on Lake Como.
This concert is part of The Royal Conservatory’s two-season Beethoven 250 Festival.
