Polish-Canadian star pianist Jan Lisiecki together with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra play music by Biber, Chopin and Shostakovich in one of Oslo’s most beautiful venues: the University of Oslo’s ceremonial hall. Edvard Munch completed his Aula paintings in 1916, and they have decorated the walls of the Aula ever since.
It is also home of Det Norske Kammerorkester (DNK), the most famous chamber orchestra in Oslo that was founded in 1977. The ensemble was founded by violinist Bjarne Fiskum, who got the idea after a summer course for young string talents in the summer of 1975.
Polish-Canadian Jan Lisiecki is considered one of the most promising young pianists in the world. As the youngest musician ever he received Gramophone's Young Artist Award in 2013, and has already completed numerous recordings with Deutsche Grammophon.
