Jan Lisiecki, piano
“Chopin playing if the highest class” ~ The Guardian
“Lisiecki chooses exceptionally slow tempi, reminiscent of Glenn Gould’s boldest recordings in which he spread out relatively short passages, impelling the listener to acquaint himself patiently with the music note by note.” ~ Presto
The SSO is thrilled to present the world renowned pianist Jan Lisiecki as part of his Poems of the Night global tour.
In 2010, Jan Lisiecki performed the complete Chopin etudes in his first Saskatoon performance – since then, Lisiecki has gone on to be one of the most respected and celebrated classical pianists of the 21st century.
At the age of 26, Lisiecki presents 100-plus concerts a year around the globe as recitalist, soloist, and collaborator. In the summer 2021 Lisiecki released his 8th recording on the Deutsche Grammophon label – the collection of the complete Chopin Nocturnes. The album garnered Lisiecki unanimous praise from critics and fans across the globe.
The Poems of the Night tour features an all Chopin program exploring the Nocturnes paired with the Opus 10 Etudes.
This marks Lisiecki’s 7th Saskatoon performance in 11 years.
This is an in-person event only – there will not be a live stream presentation of this performance.
