Born in Calgary, Canada, to Polish parents in 1995, JAN LISIECKI began studying piano aged five, making his orchestral debut at the age of nine. He has since performed nationally and internationally at many of world's leading concert halls, including Carnegie Hall, the Royal Albert Hall and Vienna's Konzerthaus, and with many of the world's finest conductors and orchestras. He signed with Deutsche Grammophon at the age of 15, releasing albums in 2012 and 2013, and was nominated for Juno awards for both. The New York Times has called him ‘a pianist who makes every note count'.

April 2014 was a memorable month for Lisiecki, as he performed three different Mozart concertos in one week with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin. The highlights of 2015 include his debut with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester, Berlin. He has received many prestigious awards, including the Leonard Bernstein Award of the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival and Gramophone magazine's Young Artist of the Year Award in 2013.
