NDO – Well-known French piano duet Thomas Enhco and Lise de la Salle will perform for the first time at a concert at L’Espace in Hanoi on December 15.

France's leading pianists are the owners of many international awards and have been highly appraised by the world's leading music critics.

Thomas Enhco, born in Paris, France, in 1988, is a French pianist and composer. Born into a family of musicians, he began playing the violin and piano as a child, before gaining classical and jazz training in both instruments, as well as in composing. He has released seven albums as a leader and has played an average of 120 concerts per year around the world, both in classical and jazz venues and festivals.
He has also been presented with many important awards such as Concours Martial Solal and Victoires du Jazz.

At the show, Thomas Enhco will perform his compositions along with the pianist Lise de la Salle. The works (mostly from the album “Feathers and Fireflies”) feature love stories with lots of emotion: sweet, contradictory and conflicting.

Pianist Lise de la Salle

Born in 1988, Lise de la Salle had her first concert broadcast live by Radio France when she was nine years old. In 2000, she won the first prize at the Ettigen international competition for young pianists.
