Over Christmas, I discovered the music of Yaron Herman. I love to listen to Keith Jarrett, and Yaron Herman’s style resembles his. Herman, born in Tel-Aviv, now living in Paris, is 25 years old — and amazingly didn’t start studying the piano until he was 16. Variations is his first solo release.
You can listen to his variation on Gabriel FaurÃ©’s “Libera Me” on his website. The CD is available via iTunes.
