THE GREAT ROMANTIC VIRTUOSO

ANDRE LAPLANTE, piano

For a lifetime of outstanding achievement, André Laplante was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada (2005). He has played all over the world and exhausted the superlatives of the critics. “He has an immense musical intelligence” (Toronto Star) “…and responds to the music with the freshness of first discovery” (James Manishen, Winnipeg Free Press).Laplante is truly one of the great artists of our era. He possesses a “…bone-deep musical sensibility; a perfection of detail in the meaningful context of the whole. Nothing neglected, nothing inflated, and everything brimming with life… he is among the master pianists.” (Globe and Mail).
