Portrait of Lise de la Salle

Lise de la Salle:

  • A Portrait

I’ve been listening and enjoying Lisa de la Salle’s performances for several years now. She has appeared in this Blog before.

At age 24, it is impressive that she already has 10 CD’s out there in the market. This recording celebrates the terrific interpretations of this artist.

Check out my Spotify playlist titled “Hank’s de la Salle”, and marvel at this artist’s ability to sing and to move audiences with her playing:

Performed by Lise de la Salle (piano)

Ms. de la Salle is amazing at the keyboard; she seems to like the slow passages in music, and she playes these generally with slower than usual tempi. But… she attacks the fast sections with strong emotion and great rhythmic execution.

Here is a video of Ms. De la Salle, performing the music of Bach:

And next here is Ms. De la Salle in music by prokofiev: Romeo & Juliet
