Yedid, Yitzhak

Pianist and composer. “Yitzhak Yedid’s music reflects a multitude of ethnic and cultural aspects of modern-day Israel. The composer/pianist is working on a synthesis of traditional musical patterns from his native country and contemporary Western music. In this real ‘meeting of cultures’, Oriental melos (Arabian and Jewish scales or the micro-tonality which is so typical of the Middle East and the Mediterranean) encounters New Music and jazz improvisation.”
