Join WRTI: Philadelphia to hear the first concert in The Philadelphia Orchestra's "Music of Vienna" series, recorded live this past January at Verizon Hall. Pianist Jan Lisiecki, an audience favorite at only 20 years old, will be the soloist in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4.

Lisiecki's new Deutsche Grammophon album turns to the music of Robert SchumannThe 20-year-old Canadian pianist presents strikingly mature and imaginative interpretations of the composer's complete concertante works for piano and orchestra. Opening with the evergreen Piano Concerto in A minor op. 54, the disc also contains the Introduction and Allegro appassionato op. 92, Träumerei op. 15 no. 7 and the rarely heard Introduction and Allegro op. 134, the latter entering the DG catalogue for the first time in the yellow label's 117-year history. Lisiecki is partnered by the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Sir Antonio Pappano, with whom he made his debut at the 2013 BBC Proms in Schumann's Piano Concerto.
