About this Recording

HERSCH, F.: Concert Music (2001-06)

Award-winning jazz pianist and composer Fred Hersch is one of the most important creative musicians in the world today. This is the first recorded collection of his throughcomposed concert works. It features the epic, virtuosic 24 Variations on a Bach Chorale and the deeply romantic Lyric Piece for Trio. Also included are two short sets of piano character pieces (including the stunning Nocturne for the Left Hand Alone) and the poignant Tango Bittersweet for cello and piano.
