Konstantin Lapshin

piano

"Konstantin Lapshin's performance gave me real pleasure. He's got a special edge in his performance, he makes the whole audience feel the music the way he does, because he has his own attitude to the piece performed. He has a lot to get across to the audience.. And this is the main thing"…
Mikhail Pletnev, pianist, conductor, composer
 
“A very special talent”
Murray Perahia, pianist

…“A big, impressive technique, and the impulsive, Romantic expression that has been a hallmark of so many Russian pianists, including Rachmaninov and Horowitz”…
Fanfare Magazine (USA)

"K. Lapshin is lavishing the ear with exquisite tonal shading, elegant inner voicing and a unique, but firm pulse"
Peter Burwasser, Fanfare

"Eloquent playing of great character. Our collaboration on Rachmaninov's 3rd concerto was one that I will remember for many years. This is a performer to watch out for."
Peter Stark, conductor, Professor, Royal College of Music, London

"Konstantin is an aristocratic pianist with a keen sense of musical awareness and virtuosity".
Vanessa Latarche, Head of Keybord, Professor, Royal College of Music, London

«…Konstantin Lapshin doté d’une respiration large et brave, d’une tête bien faite, d’un « cœur » (comme l’eut dit la critique d’autrefois) dûment accroché à cette tête – bravo»!

Bertrand Bolognesi, Anaclase


«Konstantin est d’une simplicité qui fait du bien et il rayonne dans cette simplicité. Il est direct dans son interprétation, élégant naturellement, il a encore beaucoup de fraîcheur, de poésie, son toucher de piano est tour à tour puissant sans être brutal, sans débordement, retenu et doux, avec de la délicatesse sans mièvrerie. Au bout de trois notes on sait déjà qui il interprète. Et tout celà nous paraît si naturel! C’est un artiste authentique. On ne parle plus de technique, de contrôle, ce qu’il donne va bien au-delà!… J’ai été très émue, presqu’aux larmes… »
Claude Perin


«L’interprète paraît improviser ces pages, les inventer sous nos yeux : une telle aisance est rare.»


LIVE from Salle Cortot, March 2015
