Какие роскошные бисы!!!
Nous y étions et ce concert a été un très grand moment de bonheur !
La critique du Figaro est dithyrambique ! Cela a dû être un très grand concert à ce qu'on entends dire. Quel dommage qu'il n'ait pas été enregistré !
Como gostaria de lá ter estado. Espero que tenham gravado

News excerpt from Vladivostok.
Lucas says to the interviewer: "My goal is also to play music by lesser-known composers than just Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt. I want to open up to the audience new things. If I play very well-known works, the audience is less focused on the idea of the work. I try to open new facets and bring all together: the idea, the sound of piano and the whole process to get closer to the understanding of the nature of things.
About Scarlatti, I can speak hours! He is my favourite composer and very important to me! When I play this music, it takes me into another dimension. About Scarlatti I learned a lot from Scott Ross. It’s wonderful music that never gets old."

Lucas Debargue, Wigmore Hall, ★★★★★
Four years ago the unknown French pianist Lucas Debargue won the hearts of audiences and many critics including this one at the Tchaikovsky competition in Moscow. It was partly his look of a gangling romantic poet, partly the story of his unorthodox route to stardom, via playing jazz piano and an immersion in literature. But most of all it was his extraordinary wayward, poetic playing. Debargue didn’t win over the jury, alas, which only gave him fourth prize, and the frosty Moscow piano professors sniffed at his weird piano technique. But still, the event launched him, and for a while he was the pianist everyone was talking about.
The sight of the barely half-full Wigmore Hall at his recital last night was a reminder of just how the fickle the public is. It’s a shame, as this was a tremendous concert which Debargue had clearly designed to show just how huge his range of colour and expression has become. He insinuated himself onto the platform, all knees and elbows, stared at the keyboard for a disconcertingly long time, and plunged into a group of sonatas originally written for the harpsichord by Domenico Scarlatti.
Scarlatti is a favourite challenge of young pianists because his sonatas are so flashy, technically and musically. All those blizzards of arpeggios and scales and guitar-ish Spanish-flavoured strummings are a temptation to go for a strutting, hard-as-diamonds approach. Debargue, true to form, went the other way. His tone was basically soft, respecting the harpsichord’s small voice, and he made the virtuosity into a vehicle for poetic waywardness, pulling the speeds around with startling freedom. He caught the way Scarlatti’s fierceness can change to tenderness in the blink of an eye. Being also a jazz pianist Debargue has an aversion to playing things the same way twice, and he seized on the opportunity given by the numerous repeats to colour every phrase differently.
Debargue then moved on to JS Bach, who was an exact contemporary of Scarlatti but inhabited an utterly different expressive world - as Debargue’s very different sound made clear. He summoned a big, weighty tone for the Toccata in C minor, full of haughty flourishes in the free passages and fierce motoric energy in the complex weave of the fugue.
For the 1st Sonata of Nikolai Medtner, a composer in the grandly romantic Russian tradition of Rachmaninov, Debargue found yet another sound-world. It was grand and full of dreamily melancholic half-lights, but he also caught that dignified, restrained quality that makes Medtner at bottom very different to his great compatriot. In the finale he built the tension by degrees to the thrillingly grand and virtuoso ending. The standing ovation Debargue received seemed entirely deserved; let’s hope London’s musical public takes note.
Lucas Debargue’s recording of 52 Scarlatti sonatas is released in the Autumn on Sony Classical. ... See MoreSee Less
My friend was at Wigmore Hall last night and incredible impressions exceeded all her expectations: it was a fantastic evening! Special thanks for the third Encore - Gershwin jazz! 👏
Lucas Debargue is brilliant, unique. It's their loss not to attend such a wonderful concert anyone would be only dreaming.
Très belle critique ! Espérons que cela éveillera le public londonien au génie de de pianiste.
Come back to the San Francisco Bay Area please.He had a full house here 2 years aho and adoring audience unlike cold and reserved people in England.
Audience at Wigmore Hall was not cold - the response was hugely positive, he gave three encores. People loved him.
Thank you for a fantastic performance Lucas! 😊 Would you mind sharing what you played for the encores?
Time travel back four years to Lucas’s first interview, with me at the Tchaikovsky comp. It is still a rather awe-inspiring read. What a striking intelligence. www.theartsdesk.com/classical-music/qa-special-pianist-lucas-debargue

❗️“Scarlatti” is my new upcoming release this autumn ! 52 sonatas on 4 CDs.

Scarlatti is inspiring. He’s the centre of my musical thought as regards music for keyboard instruments. I took it as a sort of personal mission to finally do something with him. ... See MoreSee Less
Long-awaited event! Congratulations!
Quel bonheur !
Most certainly a true "must have!" A gift to Scarlatti and Debargue fans, but to humankind too!
Поздравляю Люка с выпуском диска!!!
Je vais certainement l'acheter
52 (!) sonatas, bravo!!!
Ура ! 🙂😇
Wonderful news! Congratulations!
Thank you for the news! I will enjoy music 🎶
Interesting duo! I’m looking forward to hearing this! Congratulations.
Intriguing CD cover.
Wonderful news. I can't wait to hear the 52 sonatas. <3
J'achète d office, les yeux fermés !!
How exciting! Can’t wait!
Magnifique pochette, graphisme soigné, un azulejo pour évoquer l'Espagne, l'exubérance, la créativité mais aussi la structure, la répétition, la simplicité.... Nul doute que le contenu sera à l'image du contenant. On se réjouit.
Все, наверное, обратили внимание на замечательный дизайн обложки Диска. Так вот, как известно, Скарлатти жил в Лиссабоне с 1721 по 1728 гг. Азулежу (azulejo) — знаменитая керамическая плитка, без которой невозможно представить португальскую архитектуру. Видимо, поэтому для обложки Диска был выбран орнамент одной из таких керамических плиток. Фото Национального музея азулежу в Лиссабоне.
Marteen, je te conseille de mettre une option !!!!
J’ai vraiment hâte😁
