Lise de la Salle’s wonderfully exuberant dance programme brings the 2022 SJE Arts International Piano Series to a dazzling close.

Lise de la Salle has established herself as one of today’s most exciting young artists and as a musician of real sensibility and maturity. Her playing inspired a Washington Post critic to write:
​'For much of the concert, the audience had to remember to breathe… the exhilaration didn’t let up for a second until her hands came off the keyboard.'
