Pianist Jonathan Biss has been recognized for his connection to the music of Robert Schumann, whose piano Quartet he performs with members of the Elias String Quartet in this program at Zankel Hall.
The concert also includes Mozart’s Piano Quartet in E flat; Janacek’s String Quartet No. 2, “Intimate Letters”; and the New York premiere of a Piano Quintet by the young Brooklyn-based composer Timothy Andres.
Biss has been touring with the works of Schumann and last year he wrote a lengthy essay on the composer that he published as a Kindle Single.
