Jonathan Biss piano
This concert forms the first in a full survey of the sonatas from different pianists in a recital throughout 2020. 'This could be a Beethoven cycle to treasure' was The Guardian's verdict after Jonathan Biss launched his own complete survey of the works on record. Here, this most perceptive of American pianists offers us five sonatas including the meditative 'Pastoral', the straight-talking Sonata No. 20 and the emotionally charged Sonata No. 27.
The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.45
