Pianist-composer Yitzhak Yedid will give a solo concert at the Jerusalem Cinematheque, at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, as part of the Jerusalem Jazz Sessions series. The Jerusalem-born Yedid, who now resides in Australia, will perform his Tahanun Suite in a rare public rendition of the work he wrote in 2000. Yedid, 38, is one our most accomplished and acclaimed musicians, having garnered both the Prime Minister's Award for Classical Composition and the Landau Prize for the Performing Arts, in the jazz field, in the last three years. Yedid straddles the twilight zone between classical music, jazz and spontaneous improvisation and has performed at concert halls and festivals around the world. He has released eight albums to date, most with the German-based Between the Lines label. The Tahanun Suite has been described as a work that is "almost entirely improvised and arranged as a suite, with musical images performed in sequence." Yedid, who studied at the New England Conservatory under the aegis of master pianists Ran Blake and Paul Bley, plays in a highly percussive and highly emotive style and frequently feeds off his cultural and religious roots. Yedid's Jerusalem Cinematheque performance will be preceded by a duet between guitarist Udi Horev and violinist Daniel Hoffman. Later this month Yedid will also perform with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the International Harp Competition.
