A Young Gun To Keep Eyes and Ears On

If you haven't heard Mr. Biss at the piano, you're missing some of the best piano playing to be heard among the current crop of young pianists. Without doubt, he is destined to tower over the majority of his peers. Check out this very nice NYT piece:

"On his 16th birthday, in 1996, a day when some teenagers receive a driver's license, Mr. Biss began a professional career. He performed a recital that night in Chicago, and unbeknown to him, two major power brokers of the classical music world were in the audience (Lee Lamont, now the chairman emeritus of ICM Artists, and Zarin Mehta, now president of the New York Philharmonic)."
