Yuri will be coming to Corvallis as part of his Oregon
tour in November, and those of you who may have heard him play before will all
know how good a classical guitarist he is. If you haven’t, here’s what other
people have to say:
“…If there were anyone in the classical guitar world
that could manage to combine musical elegance with architectural logic, it
would be Yuri Liberzon.”
“‘Hearing Yuri play
is like opening a bottle of wine and realizing that you have just tasted one of
the best wines you will ever experience. Ever.”
Stephen Roberts, President, Sacramento Guitar Society
Born in Novosibirsk, Russia and raised in Israel, Yuri has
been recognized for his impressive technical ability and musicality. Based on his achievements in the field of
music, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
granted him Permanent Residency as an ‘Alien of Extraordinary Ability’. Yuri
has given a countless number of concerts across the United State, multiple
media appearances and has released two albums in collaboration with Grammy
winning sound engineer and producer Nahuel Bronzini: Solo album “Ascension”
released in 2015 – music from Bach to Beatles and Keith Jarrett, and “¡Acentuado!”
released in 2017 – music of composer Astor Piazzolla featuring a collaboration
with flutist Josué Casillas. Yuri has transcribed music of Domenico Scarlatti
and Johann Sebastian Bach for guitar, and is also a great teacher!
