Studio S: Jan Lisiecki
August 26, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
At just age 22, Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki has won acclaim for his extraordinary interpretive maturity, distinctive sound, and poetic sensibility. Lisiecki’s insightful interpretations, refined technique, and natural affinity for art give him a musical voice that belies his age. He made his debut in the main auditorium at New York’s Carnegie Hall in January 2016. In its rave review, the New York Times noted that it was an “uncommonly sensitive performance”. Other significant performances included subscription series debuts with the Cleveland Orchestra and San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, and multiple tours, including with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Jan also performs concertos leading from the piano, with ensembles such as the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and Camerata Salzburg. In 2013 he received the Leonard Bernstein Award at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and was also named as Gramophone magazine’s Young Artist of the Year.
