Since winning first prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2018 at age 20 and his prize-winning finish at the 2015 Chopin International Competition in Warsaw at 17, Eric Lu has thrilled audiences in some of the world’s most celebrated venues.
His Phillips program begins with J.S. Bach's Capriccio on the Departure of a Beloved Brother, BMV 992. Written when the composer was still a teenager, this piece is Bach's only surviving example of programmatic instrumental music and is thought to tell the story of when his brother joined the army band of Sweden. Lu continues with music by treasured 19th-century composers, including Franz Schubert's Impromptus Op. 90 and selections from Felix Mendelssohn's Songs without Words.
