BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (OCTOBER 4, 2021) — Jonathan Biss, a world-renowned pianist who channels his deep musical curiosity into performances and projects in the concert hall and beyond, performs Mozart’s Rondo in a minor, K. 511 and Schumann’s Davidsbündlertänze, Op. 6 for the Performance Reimagined virtual recital series presented by IDAGIO’s Global Concert Hall in partnership with GBH on Saturday, October 30 at 10:00 p.m. CET / 4:00 p.m. ET. The stream will be available to watch until Saturday, January 29, 2022. Tickets priced from $5 can be purchased from IDAGIO’s Global Concert Hall via idag.io/GBHxJonathanBiss. The ticket purchase allows the ticket buyer to choose how much they want to pay and directly supports the participating artist through IDAGIO's Fair Artist Payout Model.

The Rondo, composed after the success of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro and preceding his work on Don Giovanni, is known for its complexity and varied moods. It is often referred to as “ahead of its time.” Schumann’s Davidsbündlertänze is a series of 18 tone pictures inspired by his relationship with Clara Wieck and providing insight into the composer’s passions and emotions. Mr. Biss says he was drawn to the Mozart and Schumann works on the recital program on an almost daily basis during the pandemic.

“The extreme intimacy of these two works became even more meaningful to me when I was living in isolation. And since this series is called Performance Reimagined, it seemed fitting that I would choose repertoire I was drawn to at a time when life itself was, by necessity, reimagined.”
