Lise de La Salle

A former child prodigy, pianist Lise de la Salle made the transition to adult artist and has released a series of successful albums on the Naïve label. She has a large repertory of Romantic and post-Romantic music, focusing especially on Russian composers. Lise de la Salle was born in Cherbourg, France, on May 8, 1988. Her family was artistic, and she took up the piano at age four. By nine, de la Salle was performing on Radio France, and she won several major youth competitions as a teen, including the European Young Concert Artists Auditions in Paris in 2003 and the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York the following year. During this period, de la Salle studied privately with Pascal Nemirovsky. She studied formally at the Conservatoire de Paris with Bruno Rigutto. Another teacher was the elderly Geneviève Joy-Dutilleux, who encouraged her to begin an international career early. Taking the advice to heart, de la Salle began seeking out recitals and performed at such venues as the Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, the Herkulessaal in Munich, and the Konzerthaus in Berlin. She also became a frequent guest at French festivals, including the La Roque-d'Anthéron Festival, Music at the Serres d'Auteuil, and the Saint-Riquier Festival. Well before graduating from the Conservatory, de la Salle had been signed to the prestigious Naïve label. She released her debut album there, a recital of virtuoso works by Rachmaninov and Ravel, in 2003. With a virtuoso repertory, including concertos by Rachmaninov and Prokofiev, de la Salle has been in demand as a concerto soloist and has appeared with such major orchestras as the Staatskapelle Weimar, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Paris, and the Detroit Symphony. She has continued to record for Naïve, issuing a dozen albums by the early 2020s, including the classical-jazz release When Do We Dance?, featuring music by Ginastera, Ravel, and Gershwin, in 2021.
