Jan Lisiecki – Night Music

Author: C Major Entertainment

Night: it can be dreamy or comforting, but sometimes it’s frightening, full of dark secrets.

So it’s no great surprise that the long hours of darkness, often spent awake, have inspired so many composers to write some of their most touching works: Chopin’s dreamy Nocturnes, for example, Schumann’s dain­ty “Nachtstücke” or Ravel’s spine­chill­ing cycle “Gaspard de la nuit”, populated by sinister figures and dark premonitions.

In his piano recital at the Imperial Hall at the Würzburg Residence, the young Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki, brings the spirits of the night, both good and evil, to life; in his hands, Ravel’s goblin “Scarbo” dances and the water sprite “Ondine” swims through the waves, dangerously seductive.
