Yehudi Wyner

Publisher: G. Schirmer

Wyner is a counterexample, a grounded musician whose music does not breathe the rarefied air of a lonely garret but rather revels in the sheer physicality of performance and the rush of communicating with a live audience… His works are vital and capacious, often finding fresh ways of wedding extremely visceral expression with a refined sense of craft." —The Boston Globe
