Victoria Concert Hall

“An astonishing command of keyboard tone and color… the sign he is already a true artist. It was a spellbinding experience.”  (The Guardian)

“Lu’s playing is in a rare class – sensitive and emotionally intuitive.” (BBC Music Magazine)


Following his spectacular Singapore debut in 2019 with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra when he substituted on short notice an indisposed Martha Argerich, the internationally acclaimed pianist Eric Lu returns this June to play his debut Singapore recitals!

The first American since Murray Perahia to win First Prize at the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition in 2018, Lu’s celebrated lyrical gifts, maturity and arsenal of virtuoso resources will be put to commanding use in two overlapping programmes of extraordinary poetry. From Chopin’s breathtaking C minor Nocturne, Op. 48 No. 1, to an epic, soul-searching journey by Scriabin, crowned by a selection of melodically rich, harmonically expressive, soul-baring late Schubert that expounds the passions of sorrow and joy with a sublime sense of enlightenment.

A rewarding, spellbinding musical experience not to be missed!
