Fred Hersch & Anat Cohen


The esteemed New York jazz pianist and Grammy nominee Hersch teams up with the equally lauded Israeli clarinet and saxophone player Cohen, who is one of three jazz-playing siblings. In short, two friends come together in an intimate, musical conversation covering the history of modern jazz. Cohen makes music that blends jazz and folk styles from Brazil, New Orleans, New York, Eastern Europe and Israel; Hersch is a revered figure among jazz’s piano elite. His low-key demeanor belies a restless, searching spirit, melodic genius and a distinctive keyboard style that has influenced countless musicians.
