A Portrait of The World in Nylon and Steel


Jake Hertzog and Yishai Fisher


Stringscapes: The newest project from critically-acclaimed guitarist Jake Hertzog, is a unique fusion of the classical and the jazz world. A duo ensemble also featuring classical guitar virtuoso Yishai Fisher, the group formed in New York City in 2016 and are set to release their debut album later this year. Drawing on a diverse set of influences and unique combination of sounds - the nylon string guitar and the steel string guitar - Stringscapes is pushing the boundary between composed and improvised music. Their upcoming album, entitled "A Portrait of the World in Nylon and Steel" is a suite of four major works each with three movements that are inspired by the extreme landscapes on planet earth. 


In anticipation of the new album, Stringscapes is now available for tour dates in 2018/19 and masterclasses and workshops at colleges and conservatories. 

Check out these tracks for a very special preview of this new project.

Jake has a very personal, post-modern harmonic conception, and there is a very palpable, discernible, almost classically inflected acoustic-electric quality (like Bill Frisell and Julian Bream meet Arnold Schoenberg) which makes his compositions and variations very centered and acoustically engaging. Jake Hertzog is one of the most gifted, disciplined and original of a new generation of young guitarists coming on fast.
