Fred Hersch’s Influences to Be Exhibited in NYC

“A highly personal immersion into the music, artwork and life experiences”

Private Stash, described as “a look at the varied influences that have helped shape jazz pianist/composer Fred Hersch’s life and work to date,” will be on view from Sept. 8-Oct. 29 at Apexart, 291 Church Street in Manhattan.

The exhibition, curated by Hersch, will give visitors insight into Hersch’s artistic process by looking at the diverse influences-including everything from folk art and photography, to the music of artists as wide-ranging as Thelonious Monk and Joni Mitchell-that shape his compositions, according to a press release for the event. “The exhibition will present these items side by side with musical sketches and final music for stage productions, allowing for visitors to see-and hear-the evolution from inspiration to completion,” the release says.
