Beethoven is a specialism of the American pianist Jonathan Biss, whose recording of the complete series of the composer’s piano sonatas is an ongoing project. In addition, he has collaborated with Coursera to create the free video course Exploring Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas, which will eventually cover all 32 examples, and in 2011 released the eBook Beethoven’s Shadow, a meditation on performing the works themselves.

Each of Jonathan’s evening concerts will be followed by post-concert talks about the repertoire. He will also be providing more informal talks in the Bechstein Room on his Coursera lectures in collaboration with the Curtis Institute.

Wigmore Hall Podcasts

Following each concert in his Beethoven Piano Sonata series, Jonathan Biss will host a post-concert talk in the Hall. On Sunday 29 September, this took the form of a Question & Answer session with the audience.
