Notes & Reviews:

Canadian pianist Andre Laplante is a firmly established virtuoso of the great romantic repertoire. Critics have compared him with Vladimir Ashkenazy, Vladimir Horowitz and Rudolph Serkin, placing him in the elite circle of virtuoso pianists who do not hesitate to take risks. An active recording artist, his performance on the Analekta label of Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto with Yoav Talmi and the Orchestre symphonique de Quebec was nominated for the 2001 Felix Awards. Other Andre Laplante releases include recordings dedicated to the work of Liszt, Ravel, Rachmaninov and Brahms. A 2008 Gramophone review of the latest conferred it a "Top Recommendation", comparing Laplante's playing to Michelangeli and Richter at their apex.
