Jan Lisiecki performs Beethoven Piano Concertos

Konzerthaus Berlin

Performance date: 06/12/2018
188 Min

Jan Lisiecki made his Carnegie Hall debut with the Fourth Piano Concerto and led from the piano for the first time at the Suntory Hall in Tokyo with the same work, so it's clear he has a clear bond with Beethoven. He jumped in at four days' notice to play the full cycle of the composer's piano concertos with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields in these performances captured here from Berlin's Konzerthaus. With clear communication and intimate knowledge of the works, soloist and orchestra, led from the Concertmaster's chair by Tomo Keller, prove an ideal match in concerts that celebrated Beethoven in style in the run-up to his 250th-anniversary celebrations.
