Pianist Eric Lu performs an all-Schubert programme at the Wigmore Hall on Saturday as part of two-day focus on BBC New Generation Artists. The recital features the Allegretto in C Minor and Piano Sonata in A Major, D959 and will be livestreamed on the venue’s website.
Winner of the 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition, Eric made his Wigmore debut last December with Chopin’s 24 Preludes. He went on to perform the cycle at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, BOZAR Brussels and Philharmonie Luxembourg; and in the studio for release on Warner Classics.
Later this month Eric will make his Elbphilharmonie debut in Hamburg – also with Schubert’s penultimate sonata – and perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.21 with the Ulster Orchestra. He returns to London in January 2021 for his debut with the London Symphony Orchestra.
