The young American Eric Lu won first prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition 2018. He made his BBC Proms debut the following summer and is currently a BBC New Generation Artist. He is making a welcome return to OCMS after first playing for us in December 2019, when his Chopin Preludes were a memorable highlight.

“In this debut UK recital, Leeds winner Eric Lu showed an astonishing command of keyboard tone and colour, his instinctive feel for Schubert and Chopin the sign that he is already a true artist. It was a spellbinding experience. For Lu – just 21 – this is clearly only the beginning.” The Guardian
