Stephen Fry joins renowned pianist and musical thinker Jonathan Biss to discuss Biss’s moving new audio book 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 engage in 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.

This event was recorded with the 92ndStY in New York in February 2021.
