Brad Mehldau Trio - 7:30- 9:00pm no interval
Following his sold-out show at the 2016 EFG London Jazz Festival with Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau returns for this Trio performance.
Over the last two decades, pianist Brad Mehldau has forged a unique path which embodies the essence of jazz exploration, classical romanticism, and pop allure. His unquestionable leadership across idioms has grown as he has transformed the paradigm of jazz and classical performance – performing both solo and with his long-standing trio (Larry Grenadier, bass and Jeff Ballard, drums).
Showcasing his diversity and undeniable voice, Mehldau has also had notable collaborations with Pat Metheny, Anne Sofie von Otter, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Renee Fleming, Britten Sinfonia, Kevin Hays, Jeremy Denk and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. With his rigorous intellect feeding an inspired range of expression and intensity, Mehldau leaves his worldwide audience eager for his next foray.
‘Inside the music of Brad Mehldau is a conflict among rock, jazz and classical personalities. Ultimately, though, the pianist has figured a way to integrate all three pretty seamlessly.’ (The Philadelphia Enquirer)
