Notes & Reviews:

Of the American pianist Jonathan Biss, the Guardian recently observed that 'he has few peers as a Schumann pianist today'.

Jonathan Biss placed Schumann at the heart of his recital as he paired the composer's captivating Fantasiestücke with his intimate, characterful Davidsbündlertänze. Highlighting the strong connections these works have with Janácek's On the overgrown path, Biss crafted a rich texture by interspersing movements from the Janácek with the Schumann, as he subtly created each colorful sound world in mere moments.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2014
Biss sets out to demonstrate how much influence Schumann had on Janacek. He does so with aplomb...Biss is very much his own man, revealing often-overlooked textural details and lending plenty of impetuosity to movements such as 'Wild und lustig'.

International Record Review, September 2014
[Biss is] a pianist with special gifts.
