Eric Lu, Piano

“Artistry of that kind is rare in pianists of any age; to find it in a 20-year old is simply astounding” – The Daily Telegraph, September 2018

Eric Lu won First Prize at The Leeds International Piano Competition in September 2018, performing Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto in the final with The Hallé and Edward Gardner. On his semi-final, The Independent praised a reading Chopin’s Second Sonata which “took one’s breath away with its measured grandeur.”

Eric begins the 2018/19 season by performing with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Vasily Petrenko, and continues with further concerts with The Hallé and Sir Mark Elder. Other forthcoming dates include a concert with the Oslo Philharmonic and recitals at the Wigmore Hall, Southbank Centre, St George’s Bristol, Elbphilharmonie, BOZAR Brussels, Philharmonie Luxembourg and Gewandhaus Leipzig.

November 2018 will see the release of Eric’s first recording for Warner Classics, featuring his Beethoven and Chopin from The Leeds. Previous releases include an all-Chopin recital on the Fryderyk Chopin Institute’s own label; and Mozart, Schubert and Brahms on Genuin Classics.

Born in Massachusetts in 1997, Eric has already worked with the Minnesota Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony, Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, Warsaw Philharmonic and Qatar Philharmonic; and performed at Carnegie Hall, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Taipei National Concert Hall, Tokyo Metropolitan Hall, Auditorio Nacional Madrid and Seoul Arts Center.

Eric Lu first came to international attention as a prize winner at the 2015 Chopin International Competition in Warsaw aged just 17, and on winning the 2017 International German Piano Award and the US National Chopin Competition. He is currently studying at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia where his teachers include Jonathan Biss and Robert McDonald, and is also a pupil of Dang Thai Son.
