A Gershwin enthusiast, his Rhapsody in Bluewas recently featured in the Public Television special Hyperion Plays Piano.
Hyperion was born in Berkeley, California, joined the San Francisco Conservatory at age 16, and by the age of 22 had received his Doctorate from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Further studies included the Juilliard School in New York where he now resides.
“Not since Heifetz has anyone played Gershwin solos with this much panache…the songs glitter like jewels against black satin.”
