American pianist Jonathan Biss returns to Meany Hall for an encore performance following his stunning recital last season. “One of the most striking North American pianists of the new generation” (Toronto Globe and Mail), Biss is also known for his highly innovative online course on Beethoven’s piano sonatas, which has attracted many thousands of learners over the past several years. Biss’ program, “The Late Style,” explores the late works of Beethoven, Brahms and Kurtag.

UW Symphony Orchestra with Jonathan Biss

The UW Symphony (David Alexander Rahbee, conductor) explores the dynamic extremes of Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto with one of the composer’s most ardent interpreters, pianist Jonathan Biss, who the Toronto Globe and Mail calls “one of the most striking pianists of the new generation.” Known for his highly innovative online course on Beethoven’s piano sonatas developed as a faculty member of his alma mater, the Curtis Institute of Music, Biss appears with the orchestra on the eve of his Dec. 10 performance on the UW’s President’s Piano Series (see for details).  This performance also includes the UW Symphony Orchestra performing Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 in E Minor, Op. 64.
