 Update me on new releases by Lortie

Louis Lortie (b1959)

Louis Lortie began piano lessons at the École de Musique Wilfred-Pelletier in Montreal, eventually studying with Yvonne Hubert, a pupil of Cortot, at the École Normale de Musique. From 1968 Lortie entered piano competitions and at thirteen he won the Montreal Symphony Prize and with it, his debut with the orchestra. In 1973 and 1975 Lortie won prizes at the Concerto Praga organised by Czech radio; he also received prizes at the CBC National Talent Competition and the Canadian Music Competitions’ International Stepping Stones contest and was all the while broadcasting and giving recitals.

In 1975 Lortie went to Vienna to study with Beethoven specialist Dieter Weber; but finding upon his arrival that Weber was too ill to teach, he enrolled instead at Indiana University, studying piano with Menahem Pressler. However, after three months Lortie left: he was unsatisfied with the teaching, and apparently learnt far more from Leon Fleisher with whom he had some lessons in his early twenties.
