Jonathan returns this season marking his third appearance at the Collins Center. Jonathan honored the Collins Center last year when he agreed to select our new piano from the Steinway collection in New York City. His recital on March 10 will be performed on the very piano he chose.
American pianist Jonathan Biss is widely regarded for his artistry, musical intelligence and deeply felt interpretations, winning international recognition for his orchestral, recital, and chamber music performances and for his award-winning recordings. He performs a diverse repertoire ranging from Mozart and Beethoven, through the Romantics to Janacek and Schoenberg as well as works by contemporary composers such as Gyorgy Kurtag and including commissions from Leon Kirchner, Lewis Spratlan and Bernard Rands.
