Yitzhak Yedid’s piano recitals are film-like narrative of pictures, textures and colours. Deceptively simple, he reaches out to the listener and touches a place deep within. Drawing from his Israeli roots, Yedid creates haunting modal melodies which weave their way through rich, sometimes surprising, harmonic tapestries. Jazz, Classical and Middle Eastern images are juxtaposed. There is a sense of shifting universes, a dreamlike state where one emotional landscape flows into another.

Yitzhak has been acclaimed as one of the world’s leading composers of third stream music. A master pianist and shrewd composer, he has multiple awards to his name. In 2009 he received the Israeli Landau Prize for contribution to Jazz, and in 2006 he was awarded the prestigious Israeli Prime Minister’s Prize for Classical Composers. He also won first prize at the International Oud Festival in Israel for his composition Oud Bass Piano Trio.

Yitzhak has performed at Jordan Hall in Boston and Carnegie Hall in New York. He has performed his compositions with his Yedid Ensemble in festivals and venues across Europe, Canada, the USA, Asia and Africa. His music has received hundreds of reviews in the international media. Yedid has 11 international CD released by labels: Challenge Records International, Sony,-btl-, Muse, MCI, and Kaleidos.
