The Deutsche Grammophon debut of Canadian phenomenon, Jan Lisiecki, who is – at the age of 16 – already a household name in his home country. Born to Polish parents, Jan is fluent in three languages and, in lightning speed, already finished his schooling last year, simultaneous to signing an exclusive recording deal with DG. Christian Zacharias, highly respected for his Mozart interpretations both as a pianist and conductor, and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, embrace Jan Lisiecki’s piano with crystalline sonorities - perfect for this music.

Interview with Christian Zacharias
“Lisiecki sees these complementary works in terms as much of their similarities as of their differences and shows himself cognisant of the playfulness that undercuts the darkness of K466 and the shadows that threaten the serenity of its C major sister...Throughout, Lisiecki's touch is exquisitely graded...this is a noteworthy disc from an exciting talent.”
