An undisputed great of jazz piano, Fred Hersch comes to Strings of Autumn this year for his first ever performances in Prague, with two distinct concerts on one night in the intimate space of Saint Agnes’ Convent. He will perform a solo recital, followed by a separate concert with his trio.
Hersch’s famed lyrical performances – emotionally direct, technically superior, fiercely individualistic – make each of his concerts an event. He is a 14-time Grammy nominee and has been decribed as a ‘living legend’ by The New Yorker, while former Strings artist and fellow pianist, Jason Moran, simply says of him: ‘Fred at the piano is like LeBron James on the basketball court. He’s perfection.’
