Critics call 16-year-old Jan Lisiecki an “aristocrat of the piano", an “extraordinary talent,” “one of the most sensational young artists”, and praise him for “poetic and imaginatively executed playing”.
According to the BBC Music Magazine, Jan "is perhaps the most 'complete' pianist of his age.”

Recognized for his poetic and mature playing, Lisiecki was awarded many prestigious awards including the 2010 Révélations Radio-Canada Musique, and the 2011 Jeune Artiste des Radios Francophones.

Jan’s debut CD, released in 2010, was awarded the prestigious Diapason d’Or Découverte award.
The Diapason magazine describes Lisiecki as “an unmannered virtuoso already with virile, and above all, irresistibly natural playing.”
The BBC Music Magazines’ review commented that “even in a crowded CD catalogue, this refreshingly unhyped CD release is one to celebrate".

Jan had his orchestral debut at the age of 9, and has since performed as a soloist more than 80 times with orchestras in Canada and internationally.
He will be the soloist of the 11/12 season opening concert of Orchestre de Paris under Paavo Järvi at Salle Pleyel in Paris. Other upcoming concert highlights include debuts with the BBC Symphony at the Barbican in London, Leipzig Radio Symphony at Leipzig Gewandhaus and his debut with the Göteborgs Sympfoniker. He will return to Japan with recitals in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka. European recital debuts include Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Zurich, Lisbon, Vienna and Gstaad. In summer 2011 he will make his festival debuts at the Verbier and Radio France Festivals.

Jan Lisiecki is represented worldwide by IMG Artists and is an exclusive artist of the Deutsche Grammophon.
