André Laplante

Piano

Pianist André Laplante, hailed as one of the great romantic virtuosos, has performed extensively throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia, and has released a series of ever more impressive CDs. He first garnered international attention after winning prizes at the Geneva and Sydney International Piano Competitions, and then capturing the Silver Medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. In 2005, he was honored to be named an Officer of the Order of Canada. That same year, he was selected for the first of numerous Prix Opus Awards for best performances of the year throughout Canada. Mr. Laplante has appeared as orchestral soloist with virtually all of Canada’s symphonies - Montréal, Toronto, Québec, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver – to name only a few; toured Europe with the Toronto Symphony under the baton of Andrew Davis; and appeared as concerto soloist with the Royal Philharmonic and the late Sir Yehudi Menuhin during an extensive tour of North America. In the U.S. he has appeared with the Minnesota Orchestra, Rochester Philharmonic, Columbus Symphony, among others, and he has appeared widely at Canadian and international festivals.
