Two breathtaking, all-Beethoven programs of solo piano treasures with American piano phenomenon Jonathan Biss. A true virtuoso, Biss is widely hailed for his deeply felt musical interpretations and award-winning recordings, approaching music with a scholar’s curiosity and a master storyteller’s knack for captivating the ears and minds of his audience.
These very special performances are part of the pianist’s years-long celebration of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, recording all 32 sonatas and performing them around the world. From the brilliant lightness of Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Piano Sonata, the playful yet deeply emotional “Hunt” Sonata, to the ‘Hammerklavier,” considered one of Beethoven’s most important works and one of the greatest piano sonatas of all time.
The performance will be held at the Wharton Center in Lansing. Click here to purchase your tickets.
