Remarkable discovery of the last Tchaikovsky Competition, the virtuoso pianist Lucas Debargue returns to Moscow for an exceptional piano recital just weeks before the 2019 edition of the prestigious event. The pianist performs a brand new program, filmed for the first time!
One of the most talented pianists of his generation presents audiences with an extremely personal recital program inspired by the works of two brilliant keyboardists, the Romantic virtuoso Liszt and the baroque genius of the harpsichord—composer of no less than 555 sonatas for his instrument!—Scarlatti. Debargue juxtaposes chef-d’oeuvres by the two geniuses with Nicolaï Medtner’s Sonata in G Minor, the work he played as part of his breakthrough performance at the Tchaikovsky Competition. Don’t miss what is sure to be a truly unforgettable recital!
