Pianist Eunbi Kim celebrates the release of her debut album “A House of Many Rooms: New Concert Music by Fred Hersch” (Albany Records). “A House of Many Rooms” draws together rarely heard classical gems by the twelve time Grammy nominee and renowned jazz artist, Fred Hersch, which take inspiration from Tchaikovsky to tango. In Kim’s deft hands, each composition by the exploratory artist Hersch evokes a distinct sound, atmosphere, or color waiting to be uncovered and interpreted by the listener. Kim plays this rich and virtuosic music vividly and fervently, exploring Hersch’s flip-side, as one would any newly discovered treasure trove from a living master.
