San Francisco Performances [Canceled] Jonathan Biss, piano

Jonathan Biss has earned an avid following for his brilliant knack for putting together deeply satisfying programs and delivering them with mastery, joy and wit. SF Classical Voice called him, "a pianist whose probing, incisive and deeply considered performances are consistently challenging and rewarding."

Biss's enthusiasm for the piano manifested itself early, far exceeding his six year-old physical and intellectual capacities. This enthusiasm (or, if you take the word of Biss's friends and associates, "obsessiveness" and "neurosis") remains today, as does the feeling that doing justice to great music is an ever unattainable goal. While this doesn't necessarily make life easy, it is Biss's deeply held sentiment that any other approach would be unthinkable. Or, in his own words, "if I ever stop finding music challenging and life-altering, I'll quit and become an accountant."
