Jan Lisiecki

Event Slider

An auspicious return to Gulbenkian Music by Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki. The maturity displayed in the rendition of Chopin’s pieces earned him, from the start, worldwide acclaim. New York Times’ Anthony Tommasini praised his “brilliance, refinement and gracefulness”, perfect for Chopin’s music, a composer who was his first great passion and obsession. Lisiecki intense curiosity and voracious interpretation led him to explore, alongside Chopin, the piano romanticism of Mendelssohn.
