Described by BBC Music Magazine as “perhaps the most ‘complete’ pianist of his age, Canadian Jan Lisiecki is an exceptional young musician.
At just 15 years of age Jan Lisiecki signed with Deutsche Grammophone. His biography, though short in years is already packed with highlights other musicians can take a lifetime to achieve, if at all.
In 2008 he was made a national Youth Representative by UNICEF Canada.
Come and experience the poetic playing of this young man yourself when the Tonhalle hosts a solo with Jan Lisiecki in the Helmut-Hentrich-Hall on Saturday April 21 at 6.30pm. Tickets available from the Tonhalle.
The programme will include Bach, Beethoven, Litszt and Mendelssohn-Bartholdy.
One of the most feel-good quotes I’ve read in a long time from Jan’s website, quotes from the audience:
I just watched a documentary on CBC about your accomplishments while flying back home from Afghanistan and it was quite inspiring. I was there for the past four months flying the Chinook helicopter for the Canadian Air Force.
Your story gave me the bug to learn how to play the piano. Thanks,
Tickets, €18.00 available online here
