Jan Lisiecki Plays Schumann

Canadian piano sensation Jan Lisiecki returns to draw every ounce of poetry from Robert Schumann’s gorgeous and ardent concerto. Conductor Jakub Hrùša frames it with two arresting tone poems: Richard Strauss’s uplifting journey from earthly suffering to a peaceful life beyond, and Scriabin’s blazing, sensuous powerhouse.
