Info for Paris-Moscou

Christian-Pierre La Marca and Lise de la Salle recall the intense musical relationship between Paris and Moscow through works by Rachmaninoff and Fauré, alongside transcriptions for cello and piano of opera arias by Saint-Saëns, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky and many more.

Wonderful moments of an artist in the making; promise of so much still to come. Just as nothing in her piano playing appears excessively rushed or overdriven, so the steady growth of Lise de la Salle's career shows a careful sense of responsibility. What counts is not meteoric success, but staying power. And that career has been accompanied right from the start by a benevolent astonishment, a knowing delight, on the part of both professionals and the general public. There is nothing hysterical about this: her admirers constantly look forward to seeing what new shores she will reach, what the future holds for her by way of new discoveries, maturity and daring.
