Keith Jarrett is without doubt one of the most important, if not THE most important artists alive today in the space of solo piano improvisation.
So I was obviously very happy when Jarrett finally released a new well, 3 years old solo concert recording again. The concert is split into 12 parts, with roman numerals, plus two encores. In part IX, Jarrett all over sudden starts a boogie woogie.
For most other artist, this would make me run away. I personally am not such a big fan of when Jarrett goes much more crazy like in part VII, but these wilder improvisations are typically short. And in a way, this improvisation is even better. It must be my sentimental side, but I just love this song. You can get it here Qobuz. Nicely enough, a reader comment , inquiring about a live concert by Jarrett she heard on the radio a long time ago, brought me back on track.
This is not totally surprising, Jarrett was actually playing a lot of Bach at the time, e. About 9 to 10 minutes in this evolves into a more hypnotic part, with the left hand in a steady bass pattern over which the right hand freely improvises.
Later, around the 20 minutes mark, the music becomes increasingly minimal, but probably even more beautiful and mesmerizing. He quickly evolves back into a much more powerful improvisation. After the main course you get two smaller pieces, simply called The Wind and Blues, both of which are highly enjoyable. I sincerely hope one day artificial intelligence will be good enough to remove his singing from his otherwise fantastic albums. No idea. It is such a massive body of work, 32 sonatas, no really weak stuff in there, the late sonatas being particularly challenging.
How do you attack such a mountain, or more precisely mountain range? His answer is an album that covers 4 sonatas from the very early op. A young born French pianist, who released a beautiful Bach album two years ago that was highly praised. From Bach to Beethoven. A small step?
But Geniet manages this challenge beautifully. You get a mix from Beerhovens sonata cycle, as mentioned above from the very early sonata no. Attacking such an earworm is obviously tricky, we all have some form of reference in our head.
How does he compare against such great names of the piano? Well, actually, quite well. This, if done badly, can drown in kitsch. But actually, this makes the entire experience nevertheless extremely intense. Again, this is truly impressive. All this really comes without neglecting musical substance.
Take for example the sonata no. You simply cannot gloss over them. Pianists typically only tackle them later in the career. Orgiastic Dance Solomon And Sheba. Battle Solomon And Sheba.
