At only 22 years old, Jan Lisiecki has been called a “prodigy” (CBC), “the most ‘complete’ pianist of his age” (BBC Music Magazine), and even a Mozart of our times.
Interviews suggest that Lisiecki rebuffs such labels. What’s certain is that those lucky enough to see him perform at this age are privy to a golden moment in the artist’s trajectory. While he’s achieved a level of musical mastery that would be the envy of most mature musicians, he can still be seen, luckily for us, playing in merry prairie venues — where the average concertgoer won’t be forced to squeeze into some far-off ‘standing-room’!
At our April concert, Lisiecki will strut his stuff, performing a piece that demands swagger: Ravel’s wonderfully flamboyant, jazz-inflected Piano Concerto in G major.
