Guy Mintus Exclusive Virtual Concert Live from Tel Aviv

Sunday, February 14, 2021 at 1:00 pm

This event is underwritten by the Peggy and Yale Gordon Trust

A FREE virtual concert with Israeli pianist and composer Guy Mintus.  Coming from a mixed heritage of Iraqi, Moroccan & Polish Jews, Mintus is a true citizen of the world.  Based between Tel Aviv and New York, he is constantly on the go, having recently performed in Brazil, India, Bulgaria, Switzerland, France, Germany and cities across the US and Canada. Mintus is equally at home sharing the stage with jazz legends, composing for classical orchestras, collaborating with masters of traditional music, working with kids or guesting as a soloist with Ska-Punk band Streetlight Manifesto, with whom he performed at a sold out Beacon Theater show.

"After two albums of mainly original music, it felt right to take on the challenge of making a personal artistic statement through a canonic body of work. George Gershwin’s catalogue was a very natural choice as I have known some of the songs on this album since I was 10 years old. I am continuously astounded by how relevant, multi-layered and full of possibilities Gershwin’s music remains. For me, the definitive guideline in creating the interpretations on this album has been the lyrics.

Bringing these songs into my trio’s singular “playground” while telling the stories conveyed through each song in our own musical language has been a real joy. At times, we took a more poppy “singer songwritery“ approach, at other times throwing in some groovy middle-eastern elements or meditative "prayer-like" moments. Yet above all, of swing, playfulness, and joie de vivre."

Concert admission is free, reservations are required.
