Keith Jarrett - Concertos / WFMT 'New Release of the Week'

Bookmark and Share

For much of the 1980s, Keith Jarrett balanced his improvisational activities with performances of classical music and contemporary composition. On this disc, with concert recordings from 1984 and 1985, he is heard playing Samuel Barber's Piano Concerto and Béla Bartók's Piano Concerto No 3, and rising to the challenges of these major works. After the Tokyo Bartók performance, Jarrett returned alone to the stage to play a touching improvised encore, also documented on this recording.
