ERIC LU, piano
“Artistry of that kind is rare in pianists of any age; to find it in a 20-year-old is simply astounding.” (The Daily Telegraph, 16 September 2018)
Eric Lu won First Prize at The Leeds International Piano Competition in 2018, the first American to win the prestigious prize since Murray Perahia. He made his BBC Proms debut the following summer at the Royal Albert Hall, and is currently a member of the BBC New Generation Artist scheme. Eric is an exclusive Warner Classics recording artist.
Highlights of the 2020-21 season include debuts with the London Symphony Orchestra (Marin Alsop), Seattle Symphony (Thomas Dausgaard), Oslo Philharmonic (Constantinos Carydis), Royal Stockholm Philharmonic (Thomas Dausgaard) and Detroit Symphony (Eduardo Strausser). He will also give recitals at the Elbphilharmonie, Queen Elizabeth Hall (International Piano Series), Cologne Philharmonie, Wigmore Hall, NY’s 92nd St Y, and NCPA in Beijing.
In recent seasons, Eric has appeared in recital at Amsterdam Concertgebouw, BOZAR Brussels, Philharmonie Luxembourg, Wigmore Hall, St. Petersburg Philharmonia, Fondation Louis Vuitton Paris, Seoul Arts Centre, Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, Grand Theatre Shanghai, and Sala São Paulo.

In 2020, Warner Classics released Eric’s first studio album, featuring the Chopin 24 Preludes, and Schumann’s Geistervariationen. It was met with critical acclaim, including BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Instrumental Record of the Month’. In 2018, Eric’s winning performances of Beethoven and Chopin from The Leeds with The Hallé and Edward Gardner was released by Warner. He has also released a Mozart, Schubert and Brahms recital on Genuin Classics.
