5 questions to Jonathan Biss (pianist, educator)

Tomorrow, Friday, January 17, Jonathan Biss “one of the most thoughtful and technically accomplished pianists of the younger generation” (BBC Music Magazine) will perform music by Brahms, Beethoven, Chopin and Kurtág at Carnegie Hall. Biss kindly took the time to answer 5 questions about his MOOC experience, Kurtág, and his Beethoven project…

You have recently taught a five-week course on Beethoven’s piano sonatas to 35,000 participants in partnership with Coursera. Can you tell us about this experience?

Quite honestly, it shocked me. This was not only my first experience with Coursera: it was, to my knowledge, the first ever classical music MOOC. Given that it was uncharted territory, it’s not exactly right to say that it exceeded my expectations, because I had no expectations! But I certainly never could have imagined that tens of thousands of people would sign up; that there would be hundreds of spirited and serious discussion threads on the course forum; that huge numbers of people of all backgrounds would turn out to be as nerdy about sonata form as I am; that this number of people would interact in an unfailingly civil, yet also passionate manner. It was quite the challenge to my natural cynicism!
