"A pianist who can simply play everything - and everything always differently." (Süddeutsche Zeitung) Yaron Herman draws his audience deep into his musical cosmos. "Alter Ego" is a kaleidoscope of memories, a surprising, intimate album, a journey inside together with a new band of close musical friends.

Yaron Herman
There is something magical in the story of Israeli pianist Yaron Herman. Born in Tel Aviv, he initially pursued a promising career in basketball. However, a severe injury ended his dream of becoming a top athlete. It wasn't until he was 16 that he started learning to play the piano. What followed was a meteoric rise to becoming one of the most popular and respected pianists of his generation. Herman's musical world transcends all genre boundaries. With great adventurousness, he blurs the lines between jazz, pop, and classical counterpoint, drawing his listeners into a realm filled with innovation, joy of playing, and seemingly inexhaustible energy.
