Pianist Jean-François Latour will be teaching at Orford Academy from August 6 to 12, 2017


Review: PIano series ends on a high note

"Latour shows a remarkable affinity for Brahms, adding a brilliance to the works that is too often lost in four-square or overly Romantic interpretations."

 

"What is most remarkable about his readings is thier emohasis on inner voices, sometimes two or three at once. In Brahms at his best there is sometimes a high-pitched secondary melody that hovers over the work like a bright cloud... Latour evokes it better than most pianists I have heard"
