Notes & Reviews:

"Lise de la Salle is arguably just at that moment now where a young prodigy, acclaimed for the precociousness of their talent, teeters on the brink of emerging as a major, newly mature artist. Some, of course, never make the jump. With this pianist's obvious intelligence and thoughtfulness she was never going to disappear. A vital disc that demands to be heard." -Gramophone (Editor's Choice)

International Record Review
A talent destined for greatness, Lise de la Salle has the Midas touch. The most complete, thought-provoking young artist to come my way since the days of Pollini, Argerich and Lupu

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Young talent does not come more brilliantly or ardently alive than this. Clearly designed to demonstrate this 19-year-old pianist's versatility, Nanve's album showcases her in radically different composers and finds her equally persuasive in both. De la Salle is tremulously expressive in Mozart's A minor Rondo, making every bar pulse and breathe with a special life and prophecy of romantic things to come. She revels in the bustle and ceremony of the D major Sonata, K284. Hear her enviable perle in the last-movement Vars 1 and 3, her change to minor-key contemplation in Var 7, in the florid musings of Var 11 - and in her pinpoint definition and character in the K265 Variations - and here you surely have a young pianist born for Mozart.

But then she is no less successful in Prokofiev's diablerie, finding time, despite her headlong tempo, for piquant asides in the Toccata, for a loving romantic dalliance in parts of the Third Sonata and for a reminder in her selection from Romeo and Juliet of delicacy and affection beneath Prokofiev's outwardly prickly and intractable nature. This superb album concludes with a short DVD showing De la Salle exclaiming over what she clearly sees as her enchanted life (while acknowledging the hard work involved). All things being equal, she is clearly on the threshold of a major career. Her freshness and vitality are already something very special.

BBC Music Magazine
Lise de la Salle'sà vividly recorded programme is cleverly chosen so as to present the broadest possible representation of each composer's style. Although there are some exceptionally fine recordings of the Mozart pieces on the marketà de la Salle delivers committed performances that take full account of the stylistic conventions of the period but never shirk from presenting an individual view of the music... De la Salle's Prokofiev is even more convincing. She builds up a formidable head of steam in the Toccata... and the contrasting sections of the Third Sonata are just as imaginatively characterised.
