Yoni Rechter to Play Stephen Wise Free Synagogue, 4/5
Saturday, April 5th at 7:30pm in The Stephen Wise Free Synagogue, 30 West 68th Street, New York.
A composer, pianist, singer and arranger, Yoni Rechter has made a major contribution to Israeli music in a career spanning more than 30 years. He is considered among Israel's most important musicians with many of his compositions becoming staples of Israeli music, and voted the most popular Israeli songs of all times at many occasions.
From the back benches of the disbanding Kaveret band, Yoni began to create a breathtakingly beautiful body of work: "Love Has Many Faces", with Arik Einstein in 1976; "The Sixteenth Lamb" (also in 1978); The solo album "Intending" 1979, and "Once and Forever" with Yehudit Ravitz 1979.
Today, Yoni is as productive and creative as ever. His compositions and arrangements have rare musical depth, and at the same time are beautiful and communicative. He is touring across Israel with his show "The music is what matters", incorporating songs from his rich musical repertoire. His stop in New York will definitely be a memorable one.
