World-renowned pianist and leading musical thinker Jonathan Biss joins us with British national treasure and polymath Stephen Fry to discuss Biss’s moving new Audible Original Unquiet: My Life with Beethoven.
In Unquiet, Biss outlines in rich detail both the treasures Beethoven’s music has gifted him and the searing self-doubt and crippling anxiety that went along with it. His greatest pleasure in life was ultimately also responsible for imprisoning him. Fry and Biss will engage in a thoughtful and candid dialogue about their personal experiences as entertainers, and the extent to which having mental health issues might have contributed to — and been exacerbated by — their decisions to become performers.
Patrons who purchase access to Unquiet will receive a separate email.
