Texas, Jonathan Ware studied at the Eastman School of Music, The Juilliard School and at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” Berlin, where he now teaches. He won the Pianist’s Prize at Wigmore Hall/Kohn Foundation International Song and Das Lied Competitions, and in 2014 won 1st Prize in the International Hugo Wolf Competition and was selected by YCAT.
Sought after as a song accompanist and chamber musician, recent highlights include recitals with Christina Sidak at the Berliner Festspiele, Golda Schultz at Lauenen Chamber Concerts and with Benjamin Appl at La Roche, Switzerland.
Engagements include recitals in venues such as the Mozarteum Salzburg, the Hugo Wolf Akademie in Stuttgart, the Kölner Philharmonie, the Wigmore Hall and the Barbican. He has been invited to take part in the Verbier Academy and Festival.
Passionate about the song repertory, Jonathan was co-artistic director of a festival in New York devoted to the performance of the complete Schubert Lieder.
