Growing up surrounded by music, Jonathan Biss began his piano studies at age 6 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. 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
