“Such is the strength and conviction of his playing that the music unfolds with a natural-sounding inevitability.” – The Guardian

Jonathan Biss has been recognized with numerous awards, including the Leonard Bernstein Award, Wolf Trap’s Shouse Debut Artist Award, Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award, the Andrew Wolf Memorial Chamber Music Award, and an Avery Fisher Career Grant. An advocate of new music, with commissions and premieres by David Ludwig, Leon Kirchner, Bernard Rands, and William Bolcom, he has displayed his mastery of the classics in a nine-year, nine-disc recording cycle of Beethoven’s complete piano sonatas. This season, Biss will perform throughout the United States and Europe, including appearances with the Chicago, Danish National, BBC, Stuttgart Radio, and Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestras.
