Louis Lortie –
Chopin, The complete ÉTUDES 


Louis Lortie  |  Piano

Chopin often said that musicians must above all seek to “tell a piece”. This commitment couldn’t shine better through on Louis Lortie’s latest release of the complete Chopin etudes, captured in 2020 at the Bourgie Hall in Montreal.

With unique verve, finesse and sheer charisma, the incomparable Canadian pianist proves that virtuosity is never an end in itself, transforming each etude into a stunning tableau suffused with subtle details and a gorgeous rubato. A truly mesmerizing performance.

Better Chopin playing than this is not to be heard, not anywhere.” – Financial Times
