Jan Lisiecki turns his attention to the complete set of Beethoven Concertos / WFMT: Featured New Release

Bookmark and Share

Beethoven has proved a serendipitous theme in Jan Lisiecki's remarkable rise to international renown. The young pianist now turns his attention to the complete set of concertos, recorded live over the course of a week at the Berlin Konzerthaus with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Lisiecki believes that the composer did not conceive the piano concertos as a cycle of their own. "In spite of this," he adds, "they belong together because they reveal such a differentiated picture of Beethoven." It is this wide-ranging variety that Lisiecki finds fascinating, as it "reveals all the significant and oftentimes contradictory aspects of Beethoven's music."
