Uri Caine


Philadelphia-born composer, jazz pianist, and improviser. Caine has performed a number of jazz renditions of classical repertoire. His rich discography includes tributes to Bach, Schumann, Wagner, Mahler, and jazz legends Thelonious Monk and Herbie Hancock. Polish audiences got to know him best as the interpreter of Władysław Szpilman’s songs. Caine’s own compositions follow a jazz idiom with influences ranging from klezmer music, Romantic symphonies through contemporary composing techniques. (EC)
