A theme emerges from any study of Fred Hersch’s “shimmering pianism” (Chicago Tribune): balance. Hushed and buoyant, meticulous and playful, delicate and eruptive, Hersch plays with unbounded imagination. His storied career is punctuated with remarkable pairings (Charlie Haden, Art Farmer, Stan Getz, Joe Lovano, Audra McDonald, and Kurt Elling, to name a few), and his trio work consistently draws such raves as “the players combine so effortlessly and gracefully that the music achieves a truly rare apotheosis” (Hot House Magazine). The Williams Center provides the perfect setting for an intimate, exuberant communion.
