A Virtuoso at 19, and Not at Xbox

Most of us were probably still trying to figure out what our majors were going to be and how to hold our liquor when we were 19. Jan Lisiecki, who turned 19 just this week, is already a professional concert pianist with a successful recording and touring career. You can hear this adorable, blond-haired wunderkind perform Chopin’s gloriously romantic “Piano Concerto No. 2” with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Meyerson Symphony Center, 2301 Flora St. Chopin himself was only 20 years old when he composed this piece, and it is filled with youthful energy, passion and demanding virtuosic feats. Guest conductor Jakub Hrusa leads the orchestra in a program that also includes the music of Brahms, Dvorák and Janàcek. Tickets range from $38 to $264 and are available by calling the box office at 214-692-0203 or at dallassymphony.com.
Thu., March 27, 8 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: March 27. Continues through March 29, 2014
