Born in 1990 and trained by Rena Shereshevskaya, Lucas Debargue moulded an unconventional path to worldwide success as a pianist while studying art and literature in Paris. In 2015, he attracted international attention when he became a prizewinner of the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition. His recordings for Sony Classical – Bach, Beethoven, Medtner (2016), Scarlatti: 52 Sonatas (2019) and Zal: The Music of Milosz Magin (2021) – display breathtaking delicacy and colossal musical depth. Moreover, he introduced audiences to composers such as Szymanowski and Alkan. A winner of the 2017 Echo Klassik award, Lucas is a regular guest at the most prestigious festivals and concert halls in Europe, USA and Asia. He performed with acclaimed conductors such as Mikhail Pletnev, Vladimir Jurowski, Andrey Boreyko and Tugan Sokhiev, and in chamber music with Gidon Kremer, Janine Jansen and Martin Fröst. Equally active as a composer, Lucas’s Concertino (2017) was played by Kremerata Baltica; his Piano Trio (2019) at the Verbier Festival, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and the Fondation Vuitton in Paris. Most recently, the Terpsycordes Quartet presented his String Quartet at Geneva’s Victoria Hall.
