Jonathan Biss

"The online Beethoven course given by pianist and Curtis Institute professor Jonathan Biss last fall was remarkable for all the things it wasn't. In an age of impatience and distraction, it was a slow, deep immersion." -The Philadelphia Inquirer

Biss has undertaken a nine-year, nine-disc recording project of the entire Beethoven sonata cycle. The fourth volume of sonatas, including Op. 2, no. 1, the first Beethoven sonata; Op. 10, no. 2; Op. 49, no. 1, and Op. 57, the "Appassionata," will be released on January 27, 2015. This recording brings Biss together with DFTBA (founded by John Green, author of The Fault In Our Stars, and his brother and video blog collaborator Hank Green) and Meyer Media (founded by producer Andreas Meyer). The new partnership provides a flexible platform to integrate Biss' varied recording, writing and teaching activities.

Biss' exceptional online course, Exploring Beethoven's Piano Sonatas, will relaunch on January 5, 2015 on Coursera in a new format, allowing students to watch all the video lessons at once or progress at their own pace. As part of the massive open online course (MOOC) experience, they will be able to explore music through a fresh presentation of quizzes, supplementary materials, and a global online conversation in forums. A second part of the course on additional sonatas will launch in Spring 2015. Filmed at the Curtis Institute of Music, where Biss is a member of the piano faculty, the online lectures will eventually include all of the sonatas and are designed to help both musical novices and experts understand Beethoven√Ęs piano music.
