As a combination of supreme musicianship and Seasonal Celebrations, what would be more suitable than a traditional German Lutheran Chorale in the hands of the sensational French pianist Lucas Debargue, who is also known as an outstanding improviser and composer?
Here is a video from the annual German music prizes; ECHO KLASSIK Awards in October 2017 in the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, where he received the award for Young Artist/Piano.
Debargue was discovered through his performances at the 15th International Tchaikovsky Competition held in Moscow in year 2015. Although placing only fourth in the final round, he was the only musician across all disciplines who was awarded with the coveted Moscow Music Critic’s Prize as a pianist who’s ”incredible gift, artistic vision, and creative freedom have impressed the critics as well as the audience”.
Since then his career took off and he has been heard with leading orchestras in the most prestigious concert halls of the world such as the Grand Hall of Tchaikovsky Conservatory and the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow, Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall and St Petersburg Philharmonic Hall, Theatre des Champs Elysées, Salle Gaveau and Paris Philharmonic, Conservatory of Milan, Wigmore Hall and Royal Festival Hall in London, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Prinzregententheater in Munich and the Berlin Philharmonic Hall, Konserthuset in Stockholm, Carnegie Hall in New York and further prestigious concert halls in Tokyo, Osaka, Chicago, Montréal, Toronto, Seattle, Mexico, Beijing, Taipei, Shanghai, Seoul.
