Warner Music are to release Personal Belongings by pianist Omer Klein in the autumn and first stirrings from the album are heard on 'Najara,' a beautiful piano solo piece that introduces a dreamy taste of what to expect.
Described as ''an evocation of the Jewish liturgical poet Israel Najara, whose poetry of longing inspired Klein to compose one of his most haunting themes'' the piece was recorded in the German city of Osnabrück towards the end of last year. Israel ben Moses Najara (1555-1625) was from a rabbinical family originally from Nájera in northern Spain. Klein's earlier work includes Warner releases Radio Mediteran (2019) and Sleepwalkers (2017).
