'The Köln Concert' Concert


Date Thursday, 15 August 2019 19:00 - 21:00

Dorian Ford, internationally acclaimed jazz pianist, performs Keith Jarrett's brilliant 1975 iconic improvisation. It’s jazz, but not improvised. It’s a recital, but with grooves, riffs and song form chord changes. Like jazz and rock, but with no swing time or vocals. Ford’s aim is to reconcile equals and opposites: left brain/right brain, classical/jazz, composition/improvisation, preparation/spontaneity, Apollonian/Dionysian. Rarely performed, he plays the Kishinami/Yamashita transcription creating an unusual chance to hear these tensions brought together in an inspirational recital.
