Interview with WCVE's Mike Goldberg

Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki is releasing a new album which features the works for piano and orchestra by Frederic Chopin. Lisiecki was born to Polish parents in Canada in 1995. He began piano lessons at the age of five and made his concerto debut four years later. Jan says his aim is to always perform in a way that carries forward the beauty and brilliance of the original work. He has demonstrated that he is capable of rendering compositions remarkably close to the way they were intended. "Going into a concert hall should be like going into a sanctuary. You're there to have a moment of reflection, hopefully leaving feeling different, refreshed and inspired," said Lisiecki.
