This dashing Canadian pianist is acclaimed as a “hero” (Los Angeles Times), a “spectacular pianist” (Fanfare) and a “smashing performer” (The Washington Post). A top-selling, award-winning recording artist as well as a concert performer, his discography covers a vast repertoire, and his signature performances of composers as varied as Liszt and John Corigliano have been hailed by critics as touchstone interpretations. In his Strathmore debut, LeFèvre will perform the Washington premiere of Francois Dompierre’s “24 Preludes,” written for and dedicated to the pianist by the composer.
