      Program


      Artist: André Laplante, who in 2005 was honored to be named an Officer of the Order of Canada, garnered international attention after winning prizes at the Geneva and Sydney international piano competitions, then capturing the silver medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. 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.

      In recent years, Laplante has appeared as orchestral soloist with many of the great orchestras including the Montreal and Chicago symphony orchestras, the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, the Minnesota Orchestra conducted by Sir Neville Mariner and has toured in Europe with the Toronto Symphony under Andrew Davis. He also appeared with the Royal Philharmonic under the baton of the late Sir Yehudi Menuhin during their extensive North American tour.

      Recent seasons have also included a major concert tour of the People’s Republic of China, recital tours of the Far East, Australia and North America and appearances at major music festivals, including the Debussy Festival in France, the Pecs Festival in Hungary, the Orford Festival in Canada, the Cascais Festival in Portugal, the Salzburg Festival in Austria and America’s TCU-Van Cliburn Institute.
