Over the last decades, Canadian pianist André Laplante has firmly established himself as one of the great romantic virtuosos. He garnered international attention after winning prizes at the Geneva and Sydney International Piano Competitions, then capturing the silver medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Critics have compared him with Ashkenazy, Horowitz and Rudolph Serkin, placing him in the elite circle of virtuoso pianists who do not hesitate to take risks.

In 2005, Mr. Laplante was honored to be named an Officer of the Order of Canada. In that same year, he was awarded the Prix Opus for Best Performer of the Year. In 1999, he received two Opus Awards for live performances: “Best Concert in Montreal” and “Best Concert in Quebec.” Most recently, in 2010, he received another Prix Opus, this time for Best Concert of the Year. André Laplante has appeared as orchestral soloist with most of the world’s ensembles. Recent seasons have also included a major concert tour of the People’s Republic of China, recital tours of the Far East, Australia and North America, and appearances at major music festivals.

André Laplante has served as a juror of the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition, the International Music Festival in Australia, the CBC National Competition, the Honens International Piano Competition and the William Kapell International Piano Competition. An active recording artist, André Laplante’s releases on the Analekta label include works by Ravel and Rachmaninov, an award-winning Brahms album (Félix 1996), and a Liszt recording (Félix 1995) which was voted best solo classical album of the year by the Toronto Star. He has also recorded for CBC and Melodia: his performance of Jacques Hetu’s Piano Concerto No. 2 for CBC Records won the 2004 Juno award for orchestral recordings.

His recording of Tchaikovsky No. with Yoav Talmi and l’Orchestre symphonique de Québec, was nominated for the 2001 Felix Award; and in 2010 his recording of Liszt’s Années de Pèlerinage was awarded a Felix Award for Best Classical Solo Album of the Year. He teaches at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal.
