Culture Express : Jan Lisiecki and his recital

【明報專訊】At just 23 years old, Polish-Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki has won acclaim for his extraordinary interpretive maturity, refined technique and poetic sensibility. He is heralded as "perhaps the most 'complete' pianist of his age" by the BBC Music Magazine and was named as Gramophone magazine's Young Artist of the Year in 2013. This autumn comes his first visit to Hong Kong!

Though Lisiecki will perform solo pieces during his visit, featuring works by Chopin, Schumann, Ravel and Rachmaninoff, his idyllic performance will stand out as a shimmer of moonlight as captivating as a dazzling array of symphony orchestras. With his ingenious invention, his repertoire will include a series of night music with tranquility(寧靜)and fervor(熱情).

As the audience is serenaded by delicate melodies and mellifluous(悅耳的)harmony, the concert will make the audience forget the pianist's youthful appearance and revel in a fresh and profound encounter.

Right before his debut recital at the University of Hong Kong, Lisiecki will engage in a dialogue with Prof. Daniel Chua, Chairperson of HKU Music Department, to share his thoughts on his career, recordings, and passion for music.
