Jan Lisiecki plays Mozart

11:34

The brilliant Polish-Canadian pianist treated the Bristol Proms audience to some frankly stunning Mozart, and we caught it on camera.

Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 11 in A major K331 is one of the composer's best-loved works. The most famous section is the last movement, the fiendishly difficult 'Rondo alla Turca', but what about the first movement? 

As soon as Jan Lisiecki played the opening notes, the audience at Bristol's Old Vic was spellbound.

Set aside whatever you're doing for the next 10 minutes, sit back, and revel in this most gorgeous of classical masterpieces.
