Jan Lisiecki & the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra: Chopin & Shostakovich
Aula, University of Oslo
For this concert opening the 2022 season in Oslo, the Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki is joined by the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra to play-conduct Chopin’s two beguiling piano concertos – continuing his Chopin journey after his acclaimed DG recording of the nocturnes. Preceding the concertos, the orchestra gives its signature memorized performance of Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony, plunging you directly into the heart of this blisteringly powerful music. The concert is performed in the Aula of the University of Oslo – a ceremonial hall adorned with murals by Edvard Munch.
