Chopin Twenty-Four Préludes, Op. 28

Jan Lisiecki's dazzling, sold-out, debut concert for Camerata Musica in early 2023 was one of the most talked-about concerts of the season. He repeated this all-Chopin programme on a European tour that was consistently greeted by five-star reviews, ecstatic audiences, and sold-out performances in all of Europe's major capitals, as well as Milan's La Scala and Hamburg's vast new concert hall, the Elbphilharmonie.

Described by the BBC Music Magazine as ‘perhaps the most “complete” pianist of his age’, Lisiecki has become one of the most sought-after pianists performing today. Still in his twenties, the Canadian performs over a hundred yearly concerts worldwide, and has worked closely with conductors such as Antonio Pappano, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Daniel Harding, and the late Claudio Abbado.

Recent return invitations include Boston Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Filarmonica della Scala, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra for performances at Carnegie Hall and Elbphilharmonie Hamburg. Lisiecki recently performed a Beethoven Lieder cycle with baritone, Matthias Goerne, at the Salzburg Festival, and has appeared with the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Staatskapelle Dresden, Orchestre de Paris, Bavarian Radio Symphony and London Symphony Orchestra.
