The Appel Room
Fred Hersch & Friends: Intimate Moments
Acclaimed pianist and composer Fred Hersch has put forth some of the most arrestingly beautiful solo and trio projects in the last ten years. To that, add the most gorgeous backdrop in New York City via The Appel Room, and you’ve got the recipe for an evening of unmatched elegance. The eight-time GRAMMY® Award nominee enlists a multigenerational ensemble of world-class players in a variety of combinations, including several intimate duos. At the start of the show, Sullivan Fortner – Hersch’s protégé and winner of the 2015 Cole Porter Fellowship – will perform both solo and in duet with vibraphonist extraordinaire Stefon Harris. Hersch will then take the stage for the rest of the evening, treating audiences to one of his renowned solo performances as well as duets with two exemplary musicians: clarinetist Anat Cohen and guitarist Julian Lage. It’s “You and the Night and the Music” on one of the most sensuous evenings of the season.
Free pre-concert discussion, nightly, at 6pm & 8:30pm.
