Είναι τέτοια η πληθώρα των βιρτουόζων του πιάνου που η στιγμή να επισημάνεις κάποιον έρχεται όλο και πιο σπάνια. Ο Ισραηλινός Yaron Herman είναι  απ’ αυτές τις περιπτώσεις. Ανάμεσα στις επιρροές του αναφέρει τις ατονάλ εντρυφήσεις του Lennie Tristano, αλλά και τη μουσική των Ravel, Scriabin. Άψογος σχηματισμός και εναλλαγή φράσεων, ήχος με κρυστάλλινη διαύγεια, νότες ολοστρόγγυλες, πάθος και τέλειο κοντρόλ.
Τον ακούμε σε μια έξοχη ανάγνωση του τραγουδιού της Bjork.

Such is the plethora of piano virtuosos that the time to point out someone comes more and more rarely. The Israeli Yaron Herman is one of those rare cases. Among his influences he mentions the atonal indulgences of Lennie Tristano, and also the music of Ravel, Scriabin. Flawless formation and alternation of phrases, sound with crystal clarity, round notes, passion and perfect control.
We hear him on a superb rendition of Bjork’s song.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !
