Keith Jarrett

Editor's Choice

Multi-talented American artist Keith Jarrett is known for his prowess in both the jazz and classical music worlds as a composer and performer. The recipient of Denmark’s Léonie Sonning Music Prize in 2004, Jarrett is one of only two jazz musicians ever to have won the award, the other being the legendary Miles Davis with whom Jarrett had collaborated in the early 1970s. As a classical recording artist, Keith Jarrett has recorded both his own compositions for piano and those of his contemporaries for the timelessly trendy ECM label. As a live performer, he enjoys a reputation as a somewhat quirky character; His distaste for being photographed or filmed by audiences has lead to performances conducted in pitch-black venues, and he has been known to hand out cough suppressants at gigs to keep audience noise to a minimum. Jarrett’s 1987 live recording of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier Book 1 was released in 2019 to great acclaim, showcasing a restrained and unfussy performance of one of the most well-recorded of baroque masterworks. read more
