About the Artist

As we celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday, we celebrate a composer who has brought together billions of people of all ages and backgrounds through music that continues to surprise and astound. It is hard to imagine a more perfect tribute to this than through a concert of his songs—rarely heard in recital—performed by a most remarkable pairing of musicians. Baritone Matthias Goerne is one of the most awe-inspiring singers of our time, a star both on the world’s largest opera stages and in the most distinguished recital halls. The "ideal singer of lieder" (The New York Times), Goerne gave a mesmerizing debut on our series two years ago and now brings Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki to give his. Just 23-years-old, Lisiecki has been an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist since he was fifteen; his “uncommonly sensitive performance” (The New York Times) at his 2016 Carnegie Hall debut established his undisputed place among the greatest young pianists. The two come together for an ode to Beethoven, and the perfect culmination of our season.
