Pianist and composer Omer Klein has been called “an international star” by Der Spiegel. He creates original, exciting, and highly personal music, which was described by the New York Times as “borderless”. Süddeutsche Zeitung declared that “Klein shows with his speed, touch, refinement and creativity, that he belongs to the small group of master pianists.”
Klein’s 7th album as a leader, Sleepwalkers, will be released in February 2017 and will mark his debut album on Warner Music. He has toured worldwide leading the Omer Klein Trio, with Haggai Cohen Milo on bass and Amir Bresler on drums, and as a solo pianist.
Omer Klein grew up in Israel, where he is considered “One of the most fascinating artists that have emerged from this country in the last decade” (City Mouse, Tel Aviv). He studied at the New England Conservatory in Boston with Danilo Perez and continued his studies in New York with Fred Hersch.
Omer quickly became a notable member of the NYC jazz scene. He later moved to Germany, where he currently lives. Klein’s 2015 trio album, Fearless Friday, increased his popularity significantly, and was called “one of the most rewarding piano trio releases of recent years” by All About Jazz.
Omer Klein is a Steinway Artist.
