18-year old pianist Eric Lu is rapidly building an international reputation as a young pianist with enormous promise and a distinctive musical voice.

A native of the Boston, Massachusetts area, Eric is the 1st prize winner of the IX Moscow International Chopin Competition for Young Pianists and the 2015 National Chopin Competition in Miami, USA, where he also received the best concerto prize. In October 2015, at 17 years old, Eric won the 4th prize at the 17th International Fryderyk Chopin Competition in Warsaw, becoming one of the youngest laureates in the history of the competition. Earlier achievements include 1st prizes at both the XII Ettlingen International Competition in Germany(2010) and the Minnesota International e-Piano Junior Competition(2013). Described by the New York Classical Review as a musician of “exceptional musical sensitivity,” as well as by Michael Moran from the Duszniki Festival proclaiming: "the tone he produced was luminous, the articulation spellbinding and exciting, the legato and bel canto desperately moving." He received further recognition by the public, winning the Tabor Foundation Piano Award at the Verbier Festival Academy 2015.

With his concert life being very fresh and new, he has already received compelling responses by audiences worldwide to the unique beauty and intensity of the music he plays. Upcoming performances include recital and concerto appearances at the Auditorio Nacional Madrid, Warsaw Philharmonic Hall, Boston Jordan Hall, Nohant Chopin Festival, Krakow Music Festival, Seoul Arts Center, Sapporo Concert Hall, Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre, among others. Highlights of the 2015-16 season included a recital at Carnegie Hall in New York, at the 70th International Chopin Festival in Duszniki-Zydrój, Poland, and at Beijing Concert Hall in China. Eric has collaborated with orchestras such as the Warsaw Philharmonic, Minnesota Orchestra, Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, State Youth Orchestra of Armenia, Chopin Foundation Orchestra, etc.

He started piano studies at the age of 6 with Mrs. Dorothy Shi near Boston, MA. While at the New England Conservatory Preparatory School, he studied piano with Alexander Korsantia and Mr. A. Ramón Rivera. In 2013, Eric entered the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he currently studies with Profs. Jonathan Biss and Robert McDonald. He is also a pupil of the pianist Dang Thai Son.

managed to create
an atmosphere of intense intimacy
on a Steinway in this vast hall"
