Jan Lisiecki

Jan Lisiecki's interpretations and technique testify to a maturity that is far ahead of his age. At the age of only 24, the Canadian plays over a hundred concerts every year on the world's major stages and has built close relationships with conductors such as Sir Antonio Pappano, Yannick Né zet-Sé guin, Daniel Harding and Claudio Abbado (†).

After the success of “Nachtmusik”, he will present a new solo program in 2019/20, as well as a Beethoven song program with Matthias Goerne.

He has been re-invited with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Filarmonica della Scala, the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, the Camerata Salzburg and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra for concerts at Carnegie Hall and Elbphilharmonie.
Jan Lisiecki has played with the New York Philharmonic, the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Dresden, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra.

At the age of 15 he signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon. In his sixth album for the label, which was released in September 2019, he directs the Academy of St Martin in the Fields from the piano in all five Beethoven concerts. With the live recording from the Konzerthaus Berlin, the label is launching its releases to celebrate the Beethoven year 2020. Previous recordings were awarded the ECHO Klassik and the JUNO Award.

At 18, Jan Lisiecki was named the youngest recipient of the Young Artist Award by Gramophone Magazine and received the Leonard Bernstein Award. In 2012, UNICEF appointed him Ambassador to Canada.
