SF Performances Presents: Jonathan Biss, piano

at Herbst Theatre (7:30pm)
San Francisco Performances favorite Jonathan Biss returns with an ambitious and intriguing series of recitals that ask contemporary American composers of three generations to consider and musically respond to the legacy of Franz Schubert. Tyshawn Sorey (b. 1980) is "a composer of radical and seemingly boundless ideas" (Wall Street Journal) who often melds composition and improvisation.

Jonathan Biss's boundless curiosity about humanity and art make him a thoughtful and compelling performer. He is known for assembling programs that plumb the depths of history, explore sparks of creativity and affirm the unity of shared experience. San Francisco Classical Voice called him, "a pianist whose probing, incisive, and deeply considered performances are consistently challenging and rewarding."

Program:

TYSHAWN SOREY: New Work
SCHUBERT: Impromptu in B flat Major, D. 935, No. 3 and Sonata in B flat Major, D. 960
