Jan Lisiecki: Bio

Jan Lisiecki's interpretations and technique speak to a maturity beyond his age. At 25, the Canadian performs over a hundred yearly concerts worldwide, and has worked closely with conductors such as Antonio Pappano, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Daniel Harding, and Claudio Abbado (†).

Following his acclaimed "Night Music" recitals, 2019 sees Lisiecki present both a new solo recital programme and a Beethoven Lieder programme with Matthias Goerne. Return invitations include Boston Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Filarmonica della Scala, Santa Cecilia, Camerata Salzburg, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra for performances at Carnegie Hall and Elbphilharmonie Hamburg.

Lisiecki has appeared with the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Staatskapelle Dresden, Bavarian Radio Symphony and London Symphony Orchestra. Having signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon at fifteen, Lisiecki's sixth album for the label sees him leading the Academy of St Martin in the Fields from the piano for all five Beethoven concertos. The September 2019 release, recorded live from Konzerthaus Berlin, is the first within the label's celebration of the Beethoven Year 2020. His earlier recordings have been awarded with the JUNO Award and ECHO Klassik.

At eighteen, Lisiecki became both the youngest ever recipient of Gramophone's Young Artist Award and received the Leonard Bernstein Award. He was named UNICEF Ambassador to Canada in 2012.

Jan Lisiecki - Moving Classics Interview

In anticipation of Beethoven's 250th birthday in 2020, Jan LIsiecki presents a full cycle of Beethoven's five piano concertos, accompanied by the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58 has particularly played a significant role in Lisiecki's career. In 2013, he performed the work with Orchestra Mozart under Claudio Abbado in Bologna, replacing an indisposed Martha Argerich at short notice, and he performed the same work at his Carnegie Hall debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
