ERIC LU

Artist’s website
 
“Lu seems already to possess something of the magic tough of early Leeds laureates Murray Perahia and Radu Lupu, and is surely one of the most exciting prospects in a long time. A veritable poet of the keyboard.”-The Guardian

To say that this is an accomplished young musician would certainly be an understatement.

At 17, Lu made headlines by being a prize-winner at the 2015 International Chopin Competition in Warsaw. In 2018, he went on to win the unanimous first prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition. Since then, Lu has been busily fulfilling demands from all over the musical world for his performances, both as a recitalist and concerto soloist.

Of his performance of Schubert’s Impromptu in C minor, a critic writes that he played it “with such pianissimo finesse as to be breathtaking.” The same writer later refers to Lu as someone who “ seems already to possess something of the magic touch of early Leeds laureates Murray Perahia and Radu Lupu, … A veritable poet of the keyboard. “

His prize-winning performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, released on Warner Classics, is simply astounding, and betrays a depth and maturity far beyond his age.

The Vancouver Chopin Society last presented Eric Lu in 2015 as a very talented young pianist. Come now and experience the mature artistry and musician of this young master of the piano.

“Moments of the utmost mystery nourished the soul, while elsewhere the ear was ravished by Lu’s impeccably even, crystalline trills… And how right Lu was to wait just that split second before his first retort to the strings in the central movement, a moment of purest magic.” – Seen and Heard International

Delectable Daniel’s Chocolates will be served after the concert
