ANDRÉ LAPLANTE

March 10 @ 8:00 pm

“Laplante has worn the mantle of “romantic virtuoso” since he won a silver medal at the Tchaikovsky  Competition   in 1978. …his leonine style, titanic power and profound musicality all seem to belong to some past golden age. Laplante [is an] artist whose sensitivity and deep emotions transcend technique.” –  The Ottawa Citizen

Quebec pianist André Laplante has performed extensively throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia, and has released a series of ever more impressive CDs. Critics have compared him with Ashkenazy, Horowitz and Rudolph Serkin, placing him in the elite circle of virtuoso pianists who do not hesitate to take risks.
