Today, Deutsche Grammophon releases Jan Lisiecki’s sixth recording for the label.
Recorded live over the course of a week at Konzerthaus Berlin with Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the album features a complete cycle of Beethoven Piano Concertos and marks a milestone at the break of the Beethoven year 2020.
“Jan Lisiecki does not set out to rewrite the history of music, but to retell these great works with admiration, to seduce through his love for the cause rather than razzle-dazzle, and certainly not to impose a certain listening experience onto the audience.” (Helmut Mauró, Süddeutsche Zeitung)
“A real, fresh, uninhibited, incredibly playful recording, yet never exaggerated or artificial.” (Axel Brüggemann, Crescendo)
“Such a bold, imaginative interpretation of all five Beethoven piano concertos – Lisiecki continually outdoes himself! Believe the hype!” (ZITTY)
