Yael Weiss
32 Bright Clouds

Lauded by contemporaries and critics alike for her visionary interpretations of surpassing depth, immediacy, and communicative power, this pianist brings all of her dazzling technical skill and expressive sensitivity to bear in this global music commissioning, performing, and recording project. Weiss’ beautifully curated performance features 32 Beethoven sonatas combined with 32 newly commissioned pieces from 32 highly diverse composers in 32 countries spanning the globe. 32 Bright Clouds aims to harness music’s great power for unity and peace.

  • Weiss met her husband, a violinist, at the Seattle Chamber Music Festival in the summer of 1999. They now comprise two-thirds of the Weiss-Kaplan-Stumpf Trio.
  • As part of her ongoing effort to foster an appreciation of classical music, Weiss created and recorded Classical Minutes, a popular series of daily podcasts available on iTunes.
  • The Washington Post proclaims her to be “a pianist who delves deeply and tellingly into that cloudy area where fantasy morphs into improvisation.”
