About

Jan Lisieckiís first two albums, released in 2011 and 2012/13, just keep on selling. He has already built a loyal fan base in his home market Canada and is growing his good reputation as he is touring the world.

His new album is a dream come true for the 20-year old pianist: He recorded Schumannís works for piano and orchestra with Antonio Pappano and the Orchestra dellíAccademia Nazionale di S. Cecilia.

The recording follows his very successful Proms Debut on 19 July 2013 with Schumannís Piano Concerto. Now it is here: Janís carefully prepared and long awaited third album for DG.

The Schumann Piano Concerto is a work that leaves a lot of room for the individual approach. Itís not at all about virtuosity and technical brilliance but calls instead for a detailed and intimate dialogue between pianist and orchestra: chamber music on a grand scale.

Jan offers a fresh, thoughtful and emotional interpretation. He says: "It is almost as if Schumann left to the musician something to say. So I hope that the audience simply hears my version of this concerto and I hope they enjoy it".
