Carnegie Hall Live: Jonathan Biss & Elias String Quartet

Airs Thursday, April 4 at 11:00 a.m. "What I feel for Schumann goes beyond love and admiration," says Jonathan Biss. "The intensity of his passion for music, and his will to use music as a poetic and personal, yet fully realized and deeply expressive language strike me as the highest aims imaginable for a musician." On this program, part of his season-long focus on Mozart, Janácek, and Schumann, Biss joins members of the Elias String Quartet for Schumann's Piano Quartet.
