He is undoubtedly the most innovative pianist of his generation - a soloist who knows how to decipher the textures of pieces like no other and miraculously reassembles the disassembled material in his fantasy-sparking improvisations. It's almost as if Brad Mehldau tells a surprisingly new story with every song - whether it's a pop song, a standard or a classical work - in his own but universally accessible language. These explorations touch on the essence of the pieces. Brad Mehldau's strokes of genius, drawing from all kinds of epochs and stylistic layers, have a seriousness that listeners cannot escape: Highly complex and highly emotional, open and foolhardy - especially in his exclusive solo performances, one of which can be experienced on 07 November in the Heidelberg Stadthalle.
Tue 07.11.17, Brad Mehldau Solo, Stadthalle Heidelberg
