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.
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
