Join CPR Classical on Saturday, April 6 at 8 p.m. for "Carnegie Hall Live" and the performance of pianist Jonathan Biss with the Elias String Quartet (Sara Bitlloch, violin; Donald Grant, violin; Martin Saving, viola; Marie Bitlloch, cello).
“What I feel for Schumann goes beyond love and admiration," says Jonathan Biss. “The intensity of his passion for music, and his will to use music as a poetic and personal, yet fully realized and deeply expressive language strike me as the highest aims imaginable for a musician.” On this program, part of his season-long focus on Mozart, JanáÄek, and Schumann, Biss joins members of the Elias String Quartet for Schumann’s Piano Quartet.
The concert program includes:
MOZART / Piano Quartet in E-flat Major, K. 493
JANÁCEK / String Quartet No. 2, "Intimate Letters"
TIMOTHY ANDRES / Piano Quintet (NY Premiere, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall)
SCHUMANN / Piano Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 47
