The “meticulous, brilliant conductor” Vladimir Jurowski (New York Times) returns with the London Philharmonic Orchestra for Chopin’s cascading First Piano Concerto, featuring Canadian-Polish prodigy Jan Lisiecki. Just 21 years old, Lisiecki has been winning over critics and audiences worldwide with his “refined technique, keen musical instincts and a poetic sensibility” (New York Times). In the second half, the orchestra shifts to Mahler’s sunlit Fourth Symphony.
