French Pianist Lise de la Salle has established herself as one of today’s most exciting young artists and as a musician of uncommon sensibility and maturity. With her intense style she has enraptured audiences all around the world and has performed with many major orchestras.
Performing in Abu Dhabi on Saturday 1 February, the music programme of the evening, Dances, reflects a new approach to classical music, as it explores dance rhythms from various times and places. The programme will include Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales, combining this with Stravinsky’s Tango, Bartok’s Romanian Folk Dances and Debussy’s Mazurka. The Latin influence will also be seen in pieces from Ginastera and Piazzolla as well as in pieces inspired by American dance culture.
