Jonathan Biss (Piano)

American pianist Jonathan Biss is widely regarded for his artistry and deeply felt interpretations, winning international recognition for his orchestral, recital and chamber music performances and for his awardwinning recordings. He performs a diverse repertoire ranging from Mozart and Beethoven, through the Romantics to Janácˇek and Schoenberg as well as works by contemporary composers such as György Kurtág and including commissions from Leon Kirchner, Lewis Spratlan and Bernard Rands.

Praise for Jonathan Biss’s Beethoven Sonata cycle ‘There’s a wonderfully unforced quality to Biss’s playing … the way in which he eases into the opening movement of the A flat “Funeral March” Sonata op.26, or perfectly weights the climaxes in op.81a, “Les Adieux”, are marks of an outstanding pianist; for those who stay the course, this could be a Beethoven cycle to treasure.’ The Guardian (Vol. I)

‘I would like to be around when he gets to the end of his pilgrimage, for this is a marvellously promising beginning by one of the most thoughtful and technically accomplished pianists of the younger generation.’ BBC Music Magazine (Vol. I)

‘[An] extremely desirable disc … so infectious is Biss’s love for these works, so enviable his technique, that however many versions of them you have, you need to add this one.’ BBC Music Magazine (Vol. II)
