The pleasure in meeting Jonathan Biss. He’s a really nice guy…
And he’s an incredible piano talent. Jonathan has been wowing audiences and critics around the world with his technical precision, exquisite tone, and intellectual approach to music-making (he’s funny too, read more in his smart blog).
Check him out for yourself! Jonathan is in Toronto this Saturday to perform Beethoven’s mighty “Emperor” Piano Concerto No. 5 with Pinchas Zukerman and the National Arts Centre Orchestra at Roy Thomson Hall as part of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s Casual Concerts series. (Find details here.)
Watch here as Jonathan plays and chats up Beethoven Piano Sonatas. He’s been praised by Classic FM for how “he tantalizingly combines Classical concision with a Romanticised poetic sensitivity that gets right to the heart of Beethoven’s creative vision”.
