Keith Jarrett returns to Carnegie Hall

Keith Jarrett returns to New York’s Carnegie Hall on Sunday, January 16, 2011 at 8:00 PM to perform one of his rare solo piano concerts. The concert will feature an entire evening of solo piano improvisations performed in an acoustic recital setting. The concert will be Keith Jarrett’s only North American solo concert of the year.

Keith Jarrett’s last solo concerts at Carnegie Hall were in September 2005 (his first solo concert at the hall in over 30 years) and in January 2009. The historic 2005 concert was recorded and released in 2006 by ECM Records as a 2-CD set: The Carnegie Hall Concert. Reviews of both the album and the subsequent 2009 Carnegie concert were extremely positive. Of the latter, All About Jazz wrote that “Jarrett's recent Carnegie Hall concert may well have been the greatest solo performance of his career. To see him raise the bar again was truly a spectacular event for the nearly three thousand fans, who gave him six passionate standing ovations. For many, this concert was a dream come true, providing some compensation for Jarrett fans who wish they could have been at previous triumphs such as The Koln Concert in 1975, The Vienna Concert in 1991, and The Carnegie Hall Concert in 2005. Another milestone has been added to the list.”

The solo piano improvisations on his best selling ECM Records solo piano recordings such as Facing You, Solo Concerts, The Köln Concert, Sun Bear Concerts, Paris Concert, Vienna Concert, La Scala, Radiance, The Carnegie Hall Concert and Testament - Paris/London have helped redefine the role of the piano in contemporary music. This singular body of solo piano work is without precedent, with The Köln Concert being the best selling solo piano recording in history.
