Yonathan Avishai Trio

Yonathan Avishai


One of the most sought-after pianists in the international jazz scene, Yonathan Avishai made refinement his trademark. Elected by “Jazz Magazine” as the “Foreign Musician of the year” for 2019, Yonathan is a true storyteller, giving the impression that he composes silence and sculpts melodies.

In 2019 he released two albums for the prestigious label ECM Records, “Joys and Solitudes” in trio and “Playing the room” with Avishai Cohen, confirming his taste for elegance and an extremely expressive minimalism.

Based in France, pianist Yonathan Avishai is undoubtedly one of the most singular voices of his generation. Whether through a concert, in the theatre or in a workshop, this unique musician, shares his passion for sound, music and its history.

Inspired by artists such as John Lewis, Art ensemble of Chicago and Mark Rothko, between tradition and modernity, Yonathan strives to deepen the dimensions of his music. Packing each note with a dramatic charge. He creates a poetic world rich with emotion and color. His compositions are restrained, subtle and feature great refinement.
