Russian-Israeli guitarist Yuri Liberzon ’07 MM has released his debut album, Ascension. The solo instrumental album features compositions by Bach, the Beatles, and Keith Jarrett.
Classical music critic Dan Cohen at The Muse’s Muse wrote: “…he’s all about melody, all about communication, all about heart. It’s his Ascension, to be sure, but he wants to take us with him. My advice to you—drop everything and go!”
Yuri’s success in the United States began with full scholarships to study with Manuel Barrueco at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University, and Benjamin Verdery at the Yale School of Music. Mr. Liberzon completed his Graduate Performance Diploma and bachelor’s degree from Peabody and then his master’s degree from Yale. MORE
