Description

The internationally revered jazz pianist and composer Fred Hersch is as much a maverick in life as in music, being the first jazz musician to come out as gay and HIV-positive in the early 1990s.

He miraculously survived a two-month AIDS-related coma in 2008, and turned his tragedy into triumphant art by mounting the ambitious multimedia work, “My Coma Dreams”.
