The star-studded ICE Classic concert cycle is back! Pianist Jan Lisiecki, one of the greatest rising stars in classical music of recent years, inaugurates this year's instalment of the cycle.

Just 27, Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki has won acclaim for his extraordinary interpretive maturity, distinctive sound, and poetic sensibility. The New York Times has called him “a pianist who makes every note count”. Lisiecki’s insightful interpretations, refined technique, and natural affinity for art give him a musical voice that belies his age.

Jan Lisiecki was born to Polish parents in Canada in 1995. He began piano lessons at the age of five and made his concerto debut four years later, while always rebuffing the label of "child prodigy”. His approach to music is a refreshing combination of dedication, skill, enthusiasm and a realistic perspective on the career of a musician.

His ICE Classic concert brings two piano concertos penned by Fryderyk Chopin: in E minor Op. 11 and inF minor Op. 21. The artist will be joined on the stage of the Krzysztof Penderecki Auditorium Hall at the ICE Kraków Congress Centre by the onfonietta Cracovia orchestra.

ICE Classic is a unique series of classical music concerts, which induced Krakow to the group of important music stages in Europe. Thanks to the concert space offered by the ICE Kraków Congress Centre, the capital of the Małopolska region has at its disposal a concert venue accommodating nearly 2,000 people, with excellent technical facilities and high acoustic performance.The ICE Classic brand is consistently built upon the performances of the greatest stars of classical music. Krakow has already hosted some of the most outstanding opera soloists of our times: Aleksandra Kurzak, Edita Gruberová, Diana Damrau and Elīna Garanča, exquisite instrumentalists: Anne-Sophie Mutter, Ivo Pogorelić and Piotr Anderszewski, the outstanding conductor Kent Nagano with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal and the extraordinary composer Max Richter.
