About This Performance

This concert is supported by Elaine Kligerman.

“Jonathan and I share the deep conviction that you can never really know all there is to know about great music,” remarks Mitsuko Uchida, “and that it’s worth spending your whole life trying to know a little more.” At the Marlboro Music School and Festival where they serve as Artistic Directors, these two peerless pianists have twice performed four-hand repertoire in concert together. In this rare duo recital appearance, Biss and Uchida demonstrate their artistic integrity and abiding love for Schubert.
