Lucas Debargue, who first came to international attention at the 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition, is now making his third visit to Verbier. In the first of his four Festival appearances in Summer 2020, he devotes the opening half of his programme to Scarlatti. Reviewing his Sony album of the composer’s sonatas, released in 2019, Gramophone wrote: “To Debargue’s great credit, each of these 52 sonatas emerges with a uniquely distinctive character … Debargue’s speed and bravura are delivered with extraordinary clarity and lightness of touch. The most intricate figurations … speak with stylish eloquence … He sounds both completely on top of his game and staking out new interpretative territory with confident mastery.
