ArtistsJonathan Biss (piano)
Biss, already established as a recording artist with prizewinning Schumann and Beethoven recitals for EMI Classics, was the first American to become a BBC New Generation Artist (2002-4). In addition to UK appearances with the BBC Symphony and BBC Philharmonic, he has twice appeared in the Southbank Centre’s International Piano Series and at Wigmore Hall in 2008 gave a series of recitals as part of a trio with Midori and Johannes Moser.
“Jonathan Biss is no ordinary pianist. This young American, whose studies with Leon Fleisher have helped to polish an exceptional talent, plays with a selfless maturity that is exceptional. Biss has all the technique required, yet he unfailingly puts the composer first. Such is the strength and conviction of his playing that the music unfolds with a natural-sounding inevitability … There is nothing showy about his piano-playing; everything feels completely natural, innately musical, tightly controlled and deeply felt.” - BBC Music Magazine
