Pianist Lucas Debargue solo concert

Lucas Debargue was discovered by the music world after his performance at the 15th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 2015. “Debargue is a befuddling case of musical potential. His talent is real; his training, mysterious; his artistry, at times arrestingly beautiful. Not since Ivo Pogorelich in 1980 has a pianist garnered more attention for, essentially, not winning a competition” summarised critics (KQED).

“Power, subtlety, control, imagination, taste – he’s got it all” (Le Point). Debargue has performed in Latvia multiple times and has become a firm favourite of our audiences.
