Press Reviews
Le Piano Ivre

February, it’s snowing outside on the Piano Ivre. Thank you Marie Lacourcière, and thank you Marie. What a profound and immense joy this has given me, thanks to your creative and inventive talent and your fingertip sensitivity. What more can I say, other than to listen to you again for the pleasure of the soul, the heart and the mind.

Claude Léveillée

The highly talented pianist and composer Marie Lacourcière has enjoyed herself. A pleasure we gladly share, Claude Léveillée being the first. Full of intelligence and poetry, Piano Ivre represents a considerable body of work.

Concert pianist Marie Lacourcière sought out and found inspiration in Claude Léveillée, who may be less well known here than in his native Quebec, but overall Le Piano Ivre is highly enjoyable.

Le Piano Ivre. The piano literally seems to float.

In her show Le Piano Ivre, Marie Lacourcière delivers a chilling performance of pieces each as successful as the next. This musician is dazzling in the way she conveys her deep love of music at the keyboard.

Multidisciplinary Marie Lacourcière surprises us with her album Le Piano Ivre. Works with all the classical fluidity she is accustomed to. The title track, Le Piano Ivre, rounds off this excellent album.

Piano Forte

Marie Lacourcière, a disconcerting artist. This great pianist, who masters her keyboard marvelously, offers with Piano Forte a truly unusual show. To express so many emotions through gesture, fingers and a body that is constantly unfolding is quite exceptional.

– Paul-Henri Goulet, le Journal de Montréal

With Piano Forte, Marie Lacourcière succeeds in taking us into her own world. I really got into it, because her music, which I’d describe as free jazz, has the quality of being almost subliminal. She simply distributes her share of sensuality, which is so lacking in our daily lives.

– Daniel Rolland, Le journal d’Outremont

Lacourcière’s execution in Piano Forte was expertly shaded with moments of real tenderness, exposed blues and barely contained fury. It was like watching a “pas de deux” about two lovers in combat and in love. 

– Kathryn Greenaway, The Gazette

More than just a pianist, Marie Lacourcière’s approach is astonishing. This Piano Forte show vibrates with strong emotions. It takes your breath away.

– Denis Lavoie, La Presse

Marie Lacourcière: really special. Her tone is distinctive, her way of communicating unique. You come away shaken. Her music is sensitive, intense, rough and soft. Marginal, she uses a language that belongs to her alone. Musically, she goes straight to the heart.
