New Release: Chopin - Works for Piano & Orchestra (Jan Lisiecki)

Pianist Jan Lisiecki’s new release “Chopin: Works for Piano and Orchestra” features pieces in the so-called “brilliant style,” a form of virtuosic pianism cultivated in the early 1800s by some of the leading performer-composers of the day. During his formative years in Warsaw, Chopin applied the style to such works for piano and orchestra as the Grande Polonaise Brillante (Op.22) and Rondo à la Krakowiak in F major (Op.14).
