Jan Lisiecki was hailed by the critics for his live performances of Beethoven’s five piano concerts at the Konzerthaus Berlin:

“A sparkling performance that seems refreshingly spontaneous – yet is intellectually perfectly formed” (Der Tagesspiegel)

After his successful album “Mendelssohn”, the Canadian pianist now dedicates his next album to the five piano concertos by Ludwig van Beethoven – once again in the double role as soloist and conductor, accompanied by the Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

Jan Lisiecki believes that “Beethoven certainly did not conceive the 5 concertos as a cycle. In spite of this, they belong together because they reveal such a differentiated picture of Beethoven, starting with the first two concertos”, which still disclose the legacy of Mozart, the very different works No. 3 and 4 up to the majestic E flat major concerto No. 5.

Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58 has played a significant role in Jan Lisiecki’s career. In 2013, he performed the work with Orchestra Mozart under Claudio Abbado in Bologna, replacing an indisposed Martha Argerich at very short notice.

The album includes the concerto the young Canadian pianist made his Carnegie Hall debut with – together with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Gifted with a vast talent and supported by a powerful global marketing operation, the young Polish-Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki has now been catapulted into the ranks of the global piano stars. He was 15 when Deutsche Grammophon had him sign an exclusive contract; at 24, standing in for a poorly Murray Perahia, he played Beethoven’s five Concertos at the head of the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields for a European tour in eight different cities. There are in fact three stand-in pianists for Perahia, given he is prone to recurrent health problems. Nelson Freire, Rudolf Buchbinder and Jan Lisiecki who performed the five concertos, conducting from his keyboard, on the 2, 4 and 6 December 2018 in the Berlin Konzerthaus.

Jan Lisiecki, Christian Zacharias & Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra – Mozart Piano Concertos nos.20 & 21 (2012) [Official Digital Download 24bit/96kHz]

Jan Lisiecki, the Canadian prodigy, makes his Deutsche Grammophon debut with a masterful interpretation of Mozart Concertos. Lisiecki performs with technical assurance in this collaboration with Christian Zacharias, who leads the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Mozart’s Piano Concertos nos. 20 & 21 are technically challenging pieces and are well-respected in the classical repertoire. Lisiecki displays unworldly virtuosity, far beyond his years. The performances are glowing and compelling. Absolutely essential.

If Mozart was a child prodigy, the Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki, who here performs both works with assurance and skill, appears something of an equivalent…he is one to watch. – Scotsman

Jan Lisiecki was still only 23 when he released this, his fifth album for Deutsche Grammophon. It focuses on two of Mendelssohn’s concertos. Piano Concerto No. 1 was written for himself to play when he was about Lisiecki’s age. He must have been a fantastic pianist and Lisiecki proves a splendidly poetic, vibrant advocate. Piano Concerto No. 2, which drew praise from Schumann, has terrific power, and Lisiecki and the thrillingly energetic Orpheus Chamber Orchestra do it proud, treating it as chamber music on a big scale. Alongside the two concertos, Lisiecki gives us a pair of Mendelssohn’s finest solo works, which he plays with characteristic elegance and refinement.

Jan Lisiecki puts the spotlight on rarely recorded works of the orchestral Chopin, the repertoire that became his calling card and kick-started his international career. Jan’s release of both piano concertos (recorded at the age of 13 and 14) with Sinfonia Varsovia and Howard Shelley was praised as one of the most exciting contributions to Chopin’s 200th anniversary year in 2010. The two live recordings that have earned Jan the prestigious Diapason Découverte award in May 2010, placed him on the map as a promising newcomer and resulted in his exclusive DG recording deal. Now, Jan has fulfilled his dreams of completing the orchestral Chopin repertoire: To record all remaining works for piano and orchestra recorded in the studio with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester, conducted by the Polish conductor Krzysztof Urbański.
