Product Description

One of the most exciting pianists of the younger generation, American Jonathan Biss is widely regarded for his artistry, musical intelligence and deeply felt interpretations, winning international recognition for his orchestral, recital and chamber music performances and for his award-winning recordings. He performs a diverse repertoire ranging from Mozart and Beethoven, through the Romantics to Janácek and Schoenberg as well as works by contemporary composers. This marks the debut release in Biss complete cycle of Beethoven s piano sonatas for Onyx. The first volume features three works from Beethoven s early period and one from the middle the famous Les Adieux, Op.81a in E-flat major. This fascinating program illustrates how Beethoven s sonatas developed from the early, virtuosic works of the 1790s to the assured compositions of his middle period.
