10/13/17 Miriam Fried, violin, and Jonathan Biss, piano

Buckley Hall
Friday, Oct 13, 2017 at 8:00 PM (ET)

Growing up surrounded by music, Jonathan Biss began his piano studies at age six and his first musical collaborations were with his mother and father, violinist Miriam Fried and violist/violinist Paul Biss. Those early collaborations gave birth to an uncommonly strong musical connection, and today, mother and son have formed a highly-esteemed duo, devoting a portion of their schedules each year to performing together.

“Both musicians combine power and delicacy in a widely varied spectrum of color and dynamics. And they listen to each other. They weren’t making any apparent effort to do this...the genuine musical impulse seems to come as natural as breathing.” —Boston Phoenix
