Krzysztof Urbanski conductor
Jan Lisiecki piano
When it comes to contributions to the classical music world, Poland has always punched well above its weight, and continues to do so. This concert showcases two of Poland’s most gifted young artists, performing a piano concerto with proud roots in that country’s folk tradition. Its finale is inspired by the lively krakowiak dance, and creates one of the liveliest finales to a concerto in all music. This is bookended by two masterpieces from neighbouring Bohemia.
