It can’t be easy to keep thinking of different places to go when one’s career is already as eclectic as Jake Hertzog’s, but he doesn’t seem in any danger of running out of ideas. {This} all-acoustic expressionist work is really right in character—a step that’s natural, inventive and completely unexpected.

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. 

All music composed by Jake Hertzog

Jake Hertzog - Steel String Guitar

Yishai Fisher - Nylon String Guitar

A continuous feast of fluidity and structural evolution, each partner exploring harmonic, textural and counter-rhythmic options. A duo set of very high caliber, never starting in one place for very long and rarely predictable, if at all.
— Duane Verh, Jazz and Blues Magazine
If this is not new in itself, it is quite new for two guitars. With post-modern and original harmonic designs, they invent a personal world. This 21st century duo runs its way in musical spaces imbued with secret life
— Yves Dorison, Culturejazz (France)
