Winner of ‘The Leeds’ 2018, Eric Lu held jury and audience spellbound throughout his award-winning performances. Eric is the first winner of the relaunched and refreshed competition, which offers an international package designed to redefine what a music competition can offer young performers.
Artistry of that kind is rare in pianists of any age; to find it in a 20-year-old is simply astounding.
Ivan Hewett, Daily Telegraph
…Lu seems already to possess something of the magic touch of early Leeds laureates Murray Perahia and Radu Lupu, and is surely one of the most exciting prospects in a long time. A veritable poet of the keyboard.
