Bravo Niagara! presents internationally-acclaimed Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki in recital.
Just 22, pianist Jan Lisiecki is recognized as one of the greatest pianists of our time. Acclaimed for his extraordinary interpretive maturity, distinctive sound and poetic sensibility, he is “a pianist who makes every note count.” (The New York Times). Lisiecki’s insightful interpretations, refined technique, and natural affinity for art give him a musical voice that belies his age.
Lisiecki performs with the world’s most prestigious orchestras on major stages, and has cultivated relationships with prominent conductors including Sir Antonio Pappano, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Daniel Harding, and Pinchas Zukerman. His fourth album for Deutsche Grammophon presents Chopin’s seldom performed works for piano and orchestra with NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester and Krzysztof Urba?ski. For this recording, Jan received the ECHO Klassik in August 2017, Germany’s most significant classical music award.
In 2013 he became the youngest ever recipient of Gramophone’s Young Artist award, and also received the Leonard Bernstein Award at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival. Jan Lisiecki is an exclusive recording artist with Deutsche Grammophon
