Jan Lisiecki, piano 


Happy 250th birthday, Beethoven! Music Director Peter Oundjian continues a cycle of all five of Beethoven’s piano concertos, each performed by the award-winning Jan Lisiecki. The high-spirited Third Piano Concerto was not complete when Beethoven first performed it—his panicked page-turner later recalled many empty pages strewn with “a few Egyptian hieroglyphs wholly unintelligible to me.” Beethoven played the solos mostly from memory. The Fourth was composed by a more mature Beethoven, one exploring his inventive side—for instance, through his radical and unprecedented idea of beginning the concerto with solo piano.
