Program Notes

Just 23 years old, Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki makes his Pittsburgh Symphony debut with Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Perhaps inspired by Mozart’s great C major concerto, Beethoven demonstrates his mastery of the genre with an energetic opening, harmonic gymnastics, and a jazzy finale.
