About the Concert

The XII International Piano Festival opens with a recital by Lucas Debargue. Following his dazzling performance at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 2015 the French pianist has become a welcome guest at concert venues throughout the world. Today, his tour schedule is known several months in advance. In his programme, the musician has included one of the crowning glories of his repertoire – Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit, as well as sonatas by Scarlatti. He will be performing works by Gabriel Fauré and Frédéric Chopin at the Mariinsky Theatre for the first time.
